Does the institution have an on-site child care facility, partner with a local facility, and/or provide subsidies or financial support to help meet the child care needs of students, faculty, and staff?:

A brief description of the child care program, policy, or practice:

There are four facilities on campus that provide childcare and all are accredited by the National Association of the Education of Young Children (NAEYC).

The Early Childhood Lab School (ECL) is the weekday program for infants, toddlers, and preschoolers at Center for Child and Family Studies. It serves as a model early-childhood program, a site for research involving young children, and provides an educational experience for students studying child development. The program enrolls 82 children: 10 infants, 12 toddlers, and 60 preschoolers, in four classrooms and three large outdoor play spaces. Each class is staffed by a Head Teacher with a B.A. in human development or early childhood education, a Program Coordinator with a Master’s degree in either field, and four or five undergraduate student caregivers enrolled in the “Communication and Interaction with Young Children” course.

Hutchison Child Development Center is managed by Bright Horizons whose mission is to provide a caring and nurturing environment where children can learn and develop. The facility offers full-time and part-time child care and is located on campus, near the recreation center.

La Park Park Child Development Center and Russell Park Childhood Development Center are also located on campus, and offer full-time and part-time child care, for faculty, staff and student parents
