Children's Center

The Children's Center offers year round child care for children of students, faculty, staff, and the greater Whitewater community from ages 3 months up to 12 years. Our program’s philosophy is that children learn through hands-on, inquiry-based, open-ended activities. We defend our children’s right to play and believe that play is their work. We follow a Reggio Inspired Approach to teaching by viewing every child as capable and competent.  Our children’s families are their first teachers and partners in the learning process. Our curriculum is child-centered and initiated and we utilize the Project Approach to implement our curriculum.

University of Wisconsin-Whitewater Children’s Center has been accredited by the National Association of Young Children since 1991. We are also licensed by the Department of Children and Families Division of Early Care and Education Bureau of Early Care and Regulation. Our program qualifies as a Five out of Five Star program under the Wisconsin Quality Rating Indicator System called Young Star.

The Center is open daily from 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. For information regarding curriculum, registration and fees visit our website, or call:
