- Postdoctoral Scholars Child Care Resources (Updated 2021)
Due to limited space and long waiting lists, parents with preschool age children are encouraged to call the preschool or childcare program they are interested in prior to arrival at UCLA. The costs, eligibility criteria, quality, and philosophy vary for each program. We offer this information regarding child care resources as a courtesy to you. With the exception of UCLA Early Care and Education, the Students with Dependents Program, the Bruin Resource Center, and UCLA do not endorse any of the child care providers or schools included in the resource guide. Please be sure to thoroughly research any schools/child care providers before choosing a child care facility or school for your child(ren).
