University of Michigan Early Childhood Education and Care

The University of Michigan Early Childhood Education and Care programs are committed to:

  • exemplary early childhood care and education for children of University faculty, staff and students. Members of the community not affiliated with U-M are also welcome to apply.
  • collaborating with and serving as a resource for the University faculty's educational, research and service missions
  • providing students interested in the development of young children with a setting for observation, participation and research
  • partnership among parents, early childhood teachers and researchers to achieve these goals.

This website will show you the range of child care choices at the University of Michigan and help you select the location that best meets your family's needs. Your needs may be based on a variety of factors, such as your work or school location, your child or children's ages, whether you are a student, faculty or staff member, and whether you seek a full- or part-time program.

Whatever your needs, we want to help you make confident, informed decisions about the care and education of your children.
