UW Campus Child Care Centers

There are three UW-Madison child care centers located on campus. Each center is licensed and accredited to offer the highest quality of care.

Please note, there is a high demand at our campus centers, especially for infant care (0-2 years-old). Acceptance is not guaranteed (average waitlists may be 6-18+ months).

To get on a waitlist or inquire about availability, please reach out directly to the individual centers.

Following all UW, state, and local guidelines, all three campus childcare centers have stringent COVID-19 protocols in place to protect children, teachers, and parents. We encourage you to download or print a copy of the Parent and Family Guidance Pamphlet that outlines current guidelines and protocols in place for campus childcare.

Please note: Changes are possible if a resurgence of COVID-19 cases were to occur in our area.  We will keep you informed with regular communication as policies and guidelines change.
