Enrollment for Part-Time Care Information

 

UKids - President's Circle is operated within the Student Affairs Division of the University of Utah. Children of University Students have priority placement and subsidized fee options at the center for a minimum of 2 blocks and a maximum of 30 hours per week. Children of University students will continue to be eligible as long as one parent maintains a registered student status. If the parent loses his/her student status at any point during the academic year, he/she may no longer be eligible for priority student placement and rates. A weighted criteria scale based on student demographics is used to determine final enrollment. While University faculty, staff, post doctorates and visiting scholars are not eligible for subsidized care, we welcome their participation in our program if student slots are unfilled.

Please call 801-585-7393 for current rates.

 

Limited financial assistance is available for students from the CCAMPIS Grant administered through the Center for Child Care and Family Resources and the “School-Life” Scholarship fund through the Associated Students of the University of Utah (ASUU). Students may begin applying for aid at any time.  If you are interested in applying for aid to assist with child care costs please contact the Center for Child Care and Family Resources at the following emails:

Priority will be given to returning students who have applied during priority enrollement, followed by new student families, then staff/faculty and community. Due to our partnership with Early Head Start (EHS) in our Yellow room, families enrolled in the EHS program will have priority. 

Please do not worry if you do not hear from us before the notification of acceptance date (above) as it takes time to process all applications.

Don't forget to pay the application fee ($50 per child).  Please remember application fees are non-refundable.
