University Children’s Center (UCC)

The Children’s Centers serve the childcare needs of students, faculty, and staff by providing a high-quality early care and education program for children three months to five years of age in full and half-day placements. OFCC, located on West Campus, cares for children three months to five years of age and UCC, located in the Student Resources Building, cares for children three months to two years of age. Tuition varies depending on University affiliation, the age of the child and the schedule. California  Department of Education grants may be available to subsidize tuition costs for low-income families. In addition, the Centers participate in the Federal Food Program, which provides nutritious meals to children whose families are income eligible. The Centers are open year-round Monday through Friday from 7:30 a.m.-5:30 p.m. For more information and to place a child’s name on the waiting list, please call the Enrollment Coordinator at (805) 893-5279 or visit our website at childrenscenter.sa.ucsb.edu.
