The UIC Children's Center is open from 7:00am-6:00pm Monday-Friday.
In order to maintain child/teacher ratios families that would like to use the Early Morning Room (7:00am-8:15am) or the Late Room (5:15-6:00) must make arrangements in advance with the assistant director.
Tuition includes daily lunches and morning and afternoon snacks, catered by University Dining Services. Lunch includes an entree, vegetable, salad (or another vegetable), bread, fruit, and 1% milk. The Center serves a variety of foods but NOT pork, preserved meats (such as hot dogs), or foods with added sugar.
The designated place to park is on our driveway at the west end of the building. Our driveway is only accessible when you are driving NORTH on Damen. The driveway is for drop-off and pick-up only. Parents are not authorized to park for longer periods of time, and those who do so risk a parking ticket from the UIC Police or Parking Enforcement staff.
The Parent Handbook covers additional Center policies and procedures. Each family will be given a handbook at the time of enrollment
An annual survey is conducted to assess the satisfaction levels of parents utilizing the services of the UIC Children’s Center. The assessment collects feedback on the curriculum, care provided, center teachers, administration, communication/organization, food service, safety, the physical space, & parent involvement.
