Tuition Rates

The primary goal of the of the Children's Center is to provide quality care for the children of University of Idaho students, staff and faculty. Children from the Palouse region who do not have a student, faculty or staff affiliation with UI are also eligible, but student families on the waiting list are considered first.

There is almost always a waiting list for vacancies at the Children's Center.

Prior to Enrollment

Beginning group care and being away from parents is often overwhelming for young children. In order to help make a smooth transition, we ask that you make arrangements to help your child become acquainted with the Children's Center.

Please plan some visits with your child to the center, where you many get to know the teachers and explore the room together before they actually begin attending. Plan to spend a few hours each visit, and try to plan for shorter schedules the first few days of attendance, if possible. If you are unable to do this, we ask that you spend time with your child during at least the first week of starting and any time thereafter.
