Welcome to the Children's Center!

UW-W Children's CenterThe Children's Center offers year round, full day year round child care for children from ages 3 months up to 6 years and a Summer School Aged Camp for children entering the 1st through 5th grades. 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 and our children’s families as their first teachers and partners in the learning process.  Our program’s curriculum is child centered and initiated and we utilize the Project Approach to implement our curriculum.

UW-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.naeyc
