On Campus Child Care Programs

On Campus Child Care Services

ASU's Family Resources provides information regarding on-campus children's programs. Information can be provided via the telephone, e-mail or by appointment. As parental choice is of utmost importance, all options are discussed and resource materials are provided to families to assist them in finding the best care for their unique situation. Please email the Family Resources office for assistance.

Children's programs affiliated with ASU provide children opportunities for personal growth and discovery in a warm, friendly environment. Programs are based on developmentally appropriate practices, with low teacher/child ratios, small group sizes with high educational and training requirements for staff. Parental involvement is encouraged.

Wait lists: High quality early care and education programs typically have waitlists because of their emphasis on low ratios and small group sizes that are critical to the quality of the program. All ASU programs oversee their own enrollment and enroll families either from a wait list or during a specific time. Policies and fees vary by program and depend on the age of the child and scheduling option used. All require a registration fee.

Download the Child Care Checklist and/or Choosing Child Care to assist you in making an informed decision regarding quality early care and education.
