(Jan. 21, 2014) -- The UTSA Child Development Center (CDC) at the Main Campus has new openings for ten children of current faculty or staff. The UTSA student child care services for spring are at full capacity. The classrooms with new openings for children of faculty or staff are for infants and two-year-old children.
The center is accepting applications for children of UTSA faculty or staff in these age groups beginning today. These ten additional slots that have become available for faculty/staff child care services expand the number of available child care slots for faculty/staff from 19 to 29 children of faculty and staff.
A family orientation meeting for parents enrolling for February 2014 will be held on January 29, 2014. Tours of the CDC are available daily between 9:00 a.m. and 11:30 a.m. and in the afternoon from 3:00 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. Apply now to secure a place for your child in the CDC.
The center provides the highest level of quality early care and education and has earned accreditation from the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC), the nation's leading organization of early childhood professionals. This award designates the UTSA Child Development Center as one of the top in the nation. Only about 8 percent of preschools and other early childhood programs achieve this accreditation.
The UTSA center was started more than a decade ago with a commitment from the university to help student families attend and graduate by providing child-care services through the Student Life division of Student Affairs. Additionally, the center collaborates with the College of Education and Human Development to provide opportunities for UTSA students to participate in service learning, classroom observations and research projects related to early childhood education.
During the spring 2014 semester, the center will collaborate with the COEHD on a research project, La Clase Mágica Preescholar (The Magic Preschool Class), to be conducted by Mari Riojas-Cortez from the Department of Interdisciplinary Learning and Teaching. The project is designed to provide learning opportunities for young children through the use of technology, specifically iPad minis.
