Enrollment preference is given to USI students, staff and faculty; however, we do accept community children if space allows. USI-affiliated parents may enroll their children ages 3-5 years in the full-day child care program on a weekly or daily basis to accommodate class and study times. Children enrolled in the two-year old class must enroll full-time. In addition to our two full-day preschool classes, we also offer a half-day preschool program that meets two (TTh), three (MWF) or five mornings per week during the academic year, from 8:15 a.m. to noon and is available for community children, as well as those whose parents are affiliated with USI. Fees for this program are included on the Fees & Financial Assistance page.
All of our childcare openings are filled through our wait list. If you are interested in sending your child to the Children's Learning Center, add your name to the waiting list directly from this website.

Directions to Center:
After entering campus on the overpass, turn right onto the first road, Clarke Lane. Continue straight to the end of the large parking lot, just before the road begins to curve. The Children's Learning Center is on the right. You may park in the small drop-off lot, behind the Center; or, if full, park in the large lot across the road. If you park across the road, remember that Clarke Lane is a VERY busy thoroughfare, so be cautious and stay within the crosswalks.
