Perhaps the most important part of the UCLCC is that it is
one of only two accredited child-care centers in Stevens Point. As a parent, it
is vitally important to feel that your child is in a safe and secure
environment with knowledgeable and talented professionals around. While there
are other child care centers in Stevens Point, there are not any with the level
of education, caring and safety which is emphasized at UCLCC.

It is hard to put into words how much the campus children’s
center has helped me and my family. To have a children’s center on campus
has helped my family and I to afford the costs. It has helped with
convenience, I love having my kids on campus, and the ability to stop by
between classes to drop something off or to just say hi, and stay connected
with my children throughout the day. My husband and I cannot be more
pleased with the activities and opportunities given to our children every day.
UWSP is one of the greatest areas in Stevens Point, and knowing my children are
able to explore it, and utilize the HEC, DUC, student helpers, is an amazing
opportunity for a child. Being a non-traditional student, child care was
a big factor. I can truly concentrate on my classes and studying knowing
that they are in such a stimulating, safe, and secure environment

I have worked at three child care centers, including the
UCLCC, and I have to say this is the best one.
When I first started working here I thought I knew everything I needed
to know about childcare, but I was wrong.
At UCLCC I have learned how to effectively guide and encourage children
to explore their own interests though positive language and modeling. With its campus location, it gives students
an awesome job that is walking distance from class along with a beneficial and educational
learning experience. It also gives parents
a convenient and welcoming place for their children to learn, grow, and
play. This center keeps parents updated
with weekly newsletters and keeps families involved. If I had a child I would want my child to go

The convenience in space and time and the psychological
impact of having your child nearby while you are doing normal adult things on
campus is huge. Both of my children passed through UCLCC and having them on
campus while I was at work was comforting and convenient. I could go see them
at any time, easily have lunch with them, and respond quickly if needed for
something else. Proximity is very valuable.
My children were well prepared when they went to school. They were
comforted by my close proximity (as was I), and we all got along very well with
the staff making the experience there a real winner.

We like having the UCLCC on campus. Not only is it
within walking distance from our house, but it is within walking distance for
the summer program kids to be able to walk to nearby activities (ie; city
pool, library, downtown, movie theater, etc.).
We like the size of the UCLCC. Other options in the community
are much larger. Our children would not get the individual
attention at these larger facilities. The UCLCC has been great for
our children. Our daughter who has attended another facility does not
want to go back; she wants to stay at the UCLCC.
