Campus Child Care/Early Education

Campus Child Care

Become a partner to benefit young children and families. One of the broadest goals of the Office of Child Care and Family Resources is to offer administrative collaboration, educational and professional resources, and financial assistance to University of Wisconsin-affiliated child care centers and to the community of campus families that they serve. We build support that allows us to respond to the needs of young children and their families based on research and best-practice models. Our partnerships with individual donors, alumni, associated organizations and foundations play an integral role in the success of our efforts. Leadership and funds routed to early care and education have a far-reaching impact on children’s development and limitless learning potential.

Science confirms what our common sense already knows — that investing in the early years creates human and economic capital, essential to successful futures. There is no doubt that access to quality early education and care is key to: 1) recruiting and retaining the best and brightest faculty and staff at UW-Madison; 2) ensuring that student parents complete their degrees; and 3) nurturing the essential family relationships that promote health and well-being.
