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

The University of Texas at Austin Child Development Center provides renowned child care services to university students, faculty, and staff. At the center, we understand how important quality child care is when you balance work, school, and family every day, so we have convenient hours, locations, and prices to meet the unique needs of the university community.
Our staff members offer a developmental early childhood program that nurtures each child’s growth and education in a stimulating and caring learning environment. This diverse program emphasizes creativity and a strong sense of identity and competence, encouraging children to feel good about themselves and their abilities. In our program, children develop linguistic, social, physical, and cognitive skills that help them succeed throughout their education, and hook ’em young.
The University of Texas Child Development Center is accredited by NAC, the National Accreditation Commission for Early Care and Education Programs.
