Q & A

Children's Center Frequently Asked Questions

  • What ages does your program accept?
    6 weeks to 6 years old
  • How does the waitlist work?
    We match parents on the waitlist with our availability.  Student families are our priority.
  • How is it possible that someone who applied after I did was offered a space before me?
    It is unlikely that this will occur, however, it is possible for someone who applied after you did to be offered a spot before you if any of the following situations apply:
    • Your preferred start date is after the other families
    • The opening is in a different age group/classroom
    • Your preferred schedule is not available
    If you have any questions regarding your status on the waitlist, please call the center directly.

  • If you don’t have current openings, do you know who does?
    You may call 2-1-1 from any Idaho landline and ask for Child Care Resource and Referral. They will be able to connect you with child care providers in the area.
  • Do you accept ICCP?
    Yes, you may begin the process through the department of Health and Welfare. We will receive a projection letter once you qualify. You are responsible for paying tuition and the advance until the state payment is received.
  • Do you offer preschool curriculum?
    We do.  We are a full day program that offers a preschool component with part time options.
  • What hours qualify as full-time/part-time?
    A full-time slot is from 7:30 a.m.-5:30 p.m..  You are not required to be here all of those hours, but you have secured those hours in a specific classroom.  Part-time has a morning session and afternoon session, beginning 7:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m. and then from 12:30 p.m.-5:30 p.m..  If your school or work hours do not fall into these time slots, you will need to secure a full-time slot.
  • What is due on the first day of enrollment?
    We require a $100.00 deposit to secure your spot.  This is non-refundable and will be applied to your first month tuition.  In addition to your first months tuition, you will be billed an advance.  This is equal to one month’s tuition and will be applied once you have submitted your written 30 day notice to withdraw from the center.  You can make arrangements to pay the advance over your first three months of attending.  
    If you receive ICCP, you are responsible for paying the advance and tuition until payment has been received from the state. 

  • Do you offer a sibling discount?
    Yes, you will receive 10% off the lesser amount billed.
  • Do I have to make an appointment to visit the center?
    Parents of enrolled children are welcome any time during the day.  Perspective families are always welcome, but may want to call ahead to make sure that it is a good time for a tour and classroom activities.
  • Do you follow the same academic calendar as the university?
    We are closed on all of the holidays that the university observes.  However, we are open during the university spring break.  We are allowed three teacher in-service days per year and parent teacher conferences twice a year.  Please refer to the yearly UICC calendar.
