(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 researchers are exploring matter at the atomic level with Helenita. It's one of the most powerful microscopes in the world, with the ability to operate near the theoretical limit of resolution. At 9 feet, 2 inches tall and weighing more than two tons, Helenita can dissect almost anything. With Helenita's resolution, researchers can study particles atom by atom to see how they behave.
That's critical in developing nanotechnology that will help diagnosis early-stage breast cancer or make helmets that are uber strong. Moreover, the detail that Helenita provides will allow nanotechnology researchers to create new therapies and treatments to fight a wide range of human diseases.
Did you know? Helenita can magnify a sample 20 million times its size, which would make a strand of human hair the size of San Antonio.
