About the Center

The University of Texas at Austin Child Development Center provides renowned child care services to university students, faculty, and staff. At the center, we understand how important quality child care is when you balance work, school, and family every day, so we have convenient hours, locations, and tuition to meet the unique needs of the university community.

The University of Texas at Austin currently operates three child care locations for a total of 575 child care spaces. The age ranges for enrolled children are 6 weeks to 5 years old. As the need for child care on campus has increased the university has responded by authorized child care expansion in 2022 and 2023. The San Jacinto and Capitol Complex locations relocated in August 2022 and May 2023 to new and larger facilities. An additional 100 child care spaces were added with most being for children under the age of 2 years old.

Our staff members offer a developmental early childhood program that nurtures each child’s growth and education in a stimulating and caring learning environment. This diverse program emphasizes creativity and a strong sense of identity and competence, encouraging children to feel good about themselves and their abilities. In our program, children develop linguistic, social, physical, and cognitive skills that help them succeed throughout their education, and hook ’em young.

The University of Texas Child Development Centers are accredited by NAC, the National Accreditation Commission for Early Care and Education Programs.
