UNC Chapel Hill recognizes that offering childcare is an important benefit to our faculty, staff and students with children. The Benefit Services Department can advise you about childcare options and resources available to employees.
Child Care Resource & Referral Service
The Child Care Services Association (CCSA) administers the UNC Childcare Resource & Referral. UNC contracts with the CCSA, a non-profit child care resource and referral agency, to help UNC employees access affordable high-quality child care for their children. This service is provided free of charge to UNC employees. In addition, workshops are offered to answer any questions about finding or funding childcare.
Child Care Financial Assistance Program
The Child Care Financial Assistance Program was developed and funded through the Chancellor’s Child Care Advisory Committee. It is designed to provide financial assistance to UNC-Chapel Hill employees and students for quality child care. UNC-Chapel Hill contracts with Child Care Services Association (CCSA) to administer the program, with the Benefits Services serving as the University’s liaison to CCSA. Because funding for the program is limited, eligibility cannot guarantee assistance. For additional information on the scholarship program, Review Flyer.
University Child Care Center
The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and UNC Health Care Systems opened the University Child Care Center
, in August 1998 and contracted Victory Village Day Care Center to manage the facility. The Center is a nationally accredited, five-star licensed non-profit center.
Children enrolled at the University Child Care Center are children of students, faculty and staff of UNC-Chapel Hill and UNC Health Care Systems. The population is a diverse group that reflects the race, ethnic and cultural diversity of the Chapel Hill community. The center can accommodate 120 children, ranging from infants to five year-olds.
