Child care

Securing convenient, affordable and reliable child care is a top priority for most parents. Finding child care in the Puget Sound region can be particularly difficult and the University is working hard to increase supports for students needing childcare.

University of Washington Children’s Centers (UWCC) offer year-round care for infants, toddlers, and preschoolers at four Seattle campus locations and are operated by Haggard Childcare Resources.

For more information about childcare on campus, visit the Child Care at UW page.
