The University Childcare Center will host information sessions for interested parents Nov. 8 from 5:30-6:30 p.m. and Nov. 9 from 11:30 a.m.–12:30 p.m. in Room AB of the Training and Development Center, 315 S. Thomas St.

Wes Zwirn of Prodigies Child Care Management LLC, the provider of childcare services for the new center, will give a brief overview of the characteristics and benefits of the center and provide a forum for questions.

The center will open on the Health Sciences Campus in January; and childcare will be available to children of faculty, staff and students as well as children from the community if space allows. The center will serve up to 146 children ages 6 weeks through 4 years weekdays from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. Part-time slots also are available. Up to 20 percent of the children may qualify for a discounted rate based on family income.

The center will be licensed by the Georgia Department of Early Care and Learning and will meet the National Association for the Education of Young Children standards in the areas of curriculum and staffing including student-to-teacher ratios, group size and continuing education for teachers.
