Child Care

Learn about on- and off-campus care for young children as well as other child care resources.

If you work, teach, or study at UCSD — and have kids, too — these campus resources especially for UCSD faculty and staff can help you manage it all.

Day care and enrichment

Full-time child care

  • Early Childhood Education Center (ECEC): Offers weekday care for children 3 months to 6 years old, with 5 age-appropriate developmental programs. (There may be waiting lists for all age groups.) The center offers full-time enrollment only. Parents who meet income guidelines may be eligible for subsidized care, and an after-hours program is available.

Part-time child care

  • Mesa Child Development Center: Offers morning or afternoon sessions for preschoolers who are children of UCSD affiliates or parents in the community.
