Thank you for expressing interest in University Child Development Center (UCDC). The Center has an open door policy-please visit anytime. You may have your child placed on the waiting list by completing the form below and returning it with a $5.00 processing fee. Once you have accepted space at UCDC this fee will be applied to your initial registration fee.

Waiting list cards are kept in order by the date they are received at the Center. Individuals requesting full-time care (provided a full-time spot is available) and currently enrolled families who are expecting or who have other children have priority on the waiting list. If the space you requested is offered and you turn it down, the date on your waiting list card will be changed to the day you declined the space, if you wish to remain on the list.

If you call to check on your waiting list status please keep in mind there are some things that may alter your location on the list. Children who are on the list for the current semester who do not get in will have their card moved to the next semester. Their card will be placed in the appropriate location depending on the date they were placed on the list. Or, a child on a "younger" waiting list who has a birthday, making them old enough for the next age group, will have their card placed on the "older" list in the appropriate location by date. These items could potentially change your spot on the waiting list!

The wait for infant & toddler age children is typically 6-12 months, but has been known to take up to two years at times. The wait for a two-year-old is typically 6-9 months. Preschool ages 2 ½ to 5(or 6) years, who are using the toilet independently, occasionally experience a wait, but not always. Thanks again for inquiring about UCDC. It's a great place for kids and families-we hope to hear from you soon.
