Drop-In Care Program
Do you need child care in the evenings while you study? Take an exam? Meet with a tutor? Work on a group project?
Ukids - President's Circle offers Drop-In child care Monday-Thursday between the hours of 5:00pm-7:00pm for children 6 weeks-7 years old. Availability is limited and varies each evening, so please make sure to contact us as soon as you know the times you need.
Purchase a punch card (indicate "Evening Care" on the form under "Type of Tuition"). The punch cards are good for 8 hours of care, you pay for 6 hours and receive 2 free hours complimentary of The Center for Child Care and Family Resources!
