Our mandate is to provide and promote childcare services for the children of students, faculty and staff that make up the University of Calgary Community.
At the UCCC
we believe that play is imperative during the early years of life. Our goal is to provide an exemplary inclusive program that supports and encourages the unique potential within each child. We do this by promoting the natural process of play in an enriched setting that provides optimal conditions for each child to grow at their own pace.
The Centre is open from 7:30am to 5:30pm Monday thru Friday. We are closed on all statutory holidays, two professional days per year as well as the week between Christmas and New Years.
Admission to UCCC
Applicants are prioritized within each age group on the basis of their waiting list application date. At our Main Campus location the order of priority placement is first given to University of Calgary full time students followed by University of Calgary faculty, and staff, with the exception of children who have a sibling attending the UCCC, in which case sibling placement takes priority. At our new West Campus location, staff and faculty have priority over full time students. To be on our waiting list you must turn in a completed waiting list application form accompanied by a non-refundable registration fee and confirmation or your University Affiliation. Being placed on the Wait List does NOT guarantee you a spot at the centre. On average, most children are on the waitlist 1 to 3 years.
