The UW-Platteville Children’s Center provides excellent child care services and educational experiences for the children of UW-Platteville students, faculty, staff, and Platteville community members. The Children’s Center operates weekdays from 7:30 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. during the academic year, interim periods and summer session. The Children’s Center provides child care and educational opportunities for children ages 6 weeks through 10 years.
Lead teachers, who hold a degree in the field of early childhood, staff the Children’s Center classrooms. College students seeking degrees primarily in education or psychology assist the classroom teachers. The Children’s Center also serves as a laboratory and research site for students learning about child development and early childhood practices. Located in their own facility north of Doudna Hall, the Children’s Center is a state licensed facility and is nationally accredited through NECPA (National Early Childhood Program Accreditation).
A reduced fee is charged to student parents. To be eligible for the student rate, a parent must be registered for at least six credits as an undergraduate student during the academic year or for three credits during the summer session. Graduate students must carry a minimum of five credits and pay segregated fees. If a student is registered for less than the minimum credit load, fees are charged at the faculty/staff/community rate.
