Students are able to receive funds at the on-campus University Child Development Center or
request to receive funds at an off-campus provider. If you have not yet found a childcare facility, the Childcare Aware of Missouri Childcare Search is a great place to start! We
encourage you to use the Child Care Center Checklist
when visiting providers, review their license and to review provider policies and procedures before making a selection. Student parents must visit and/or contact providers to ensure availability, pricing information, and overall quality.
After completing the application for the Triton Childcare Fund, if you would like to enroll your child in the University Child Development Center, click the button below and complete the application. Please note, if you are eligible for the Triton Childcare Fund you are not required to pay the $25 application fee.
Off-Campus Childcare Providers
The Triton Childcare Fund can provide assistance with childcare costs at approved, off-campus childcare facilities as well. Off-campus providers must be requested and approved. In order to be approved, an off-campus provider must be licensed and willing to participate; it is also strongly preferred that they are accredited. If a center is not currently accredited, they must agree to seek accreditation within a 4-year period of agreeing to participate. If you would like to utilize an off-campus facility, complete the childcare provider request form below after completing a Triton Childcare Fund application.
Request forms do not guarantee approval. Requested providers will be reviewed thoroughly to ensure quality. Students will be notified of the approval status of their requested childcare facility. Off-campus childcare providers are subject to ongoing review. If an off-campus provider does not comply with the terms of our mutually signed agreement, we reserve the right to terminate the agreement which may result in the loss of funding for the student. The Triton Childcare Fund cannot provide assistance with existing balances.
