(Sept. 1, 2010)--UTSA has a childcare facility for use by UTSA students, faculty and staff. Licensed by the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services and accredited by the National Association for the Education of Young Children, the facility also is a Texas Rising Star Child Care Delivery Service provider.
Open since January 2003, the UTSA Child Development Center (CDC) is between parking lots 10 and 11 on the southwest side of the Main Campus, adjacent to the University Oaks apartments. The CDC is licensed to care for up to 106 children ranging in age from six weeks to five years.
UTSA students who have children may be eligible for financial aid to help cover the costs of childcare. Additionally, a scholarship program is available to help pay for childcare expenses and is awarded based on a number of factors including the applicant's financial need, academic performance and space availability in the facility.
"Eighty percent of the slots are dedicated to students with the remaining 20 percent set aside for faculty and staff," said Norma Castillo, CDC administrative assistant.
Tuition rates and available slots for the CDC vary depending upon the child's age, family income, and student or faculty status. A variety of payment plans are available for parent convenience and include monthly, bimonthly and lump-sum arrangements. Parents should apply as soon as they anticipate needing to utilize the facility, since they may be placed on a waiting list.
According to Castillo, undergraduate students must be enrolled in at least 12 hours and graduate students must be enrolled in at least nine hours to be eligible for placement on the waiting list.
The CDC hours are 7:30 a.m.-5:30 p.m., Monday-Friday, closed weekends and holidays.

UTSA prides itself on giving students a well-rounded education. Combining a top-tier academic program with opportunities for personal growth prepares students to compete in a global economy. And that's not all. They learn to be informed and engaged citizens as well. At the heart of that academic program is an award-winning core curriculum.
For four consecutive years, UTSA has received an A-rating from the American Council of Trustees and Alumni for the caliber of its core curriculum. According to ACTA, UTSA requires its students to take six of the seven courses deemed "crucial" to a well-rounded education: composition, literature, U.S. government or history, economics, mathematics and science. Only a handful of other institutions in the U.S. are giving students these tools, which are needed to succeed in careers and the community.
Did you know? UTSA is one of only three Texas institutions and 23 in the United States to receive the highest rating for its core curriculum in the 2014-2015 edition of the ACTA's "What Will They Learn?" report.
