9.11 Child Care

The CHILD Center is a department within the Division of Student Affairs and is also a component of the College of Education and Professional Studies. The center is licensed by the state of Wisconsin, serving children six weeks to 10 years of age. Hours are 7:00am to 6:00pm Monday through Friday, year round.

It is the intention of the CHILD Center to provide quality care to the children of students, faculty/staff and to the community at a reasonable cost. The center also serves as a fieldwork site for programs including but not limited to Early Childhood, Elementary Education, Communicative Disorders, Social Work, Counseling and School Psychology. We believe that children learn through active interaction with their environment, peers and nurturing caregivers, recognizing the individual needs and nature of each child.

UWRF students with six credits or more qualify for student rates and will be given priority for enrollment.
