University Child Development Center (UCDC) is a campus-based child-care center serving the University of Missouri-St. Louis and surrounding communities.

The purposes of the Center are to provide high quality programming for children and their parents; staff development and teacher training; and a site for child study/research.

The Center, located in Room 130 South Campus Classroom Building at the University of Missouri-St. Louis South Campus, 7800 Natural Bridge (map), provides full and half-day care for children ages 6 weeks to 5 years of age (or before a child attends kindergarten). Starting in Spring 2019, the Center will also offer evening care to fully potty trained children ages three to eleven.
