UGA-affiliated child care

Along with a large number of childcare options in and around Athens, the University of Georgia offers two childcare facilities affiliated with the University.

The University Childcare Center (UCC) is located on the UGA Health Sciences Campus in Athens. UGA contracted with Prodigies Childcare Management, LLC to manage the UCC, and UGA Human Resources oversees the contract with Prodigies Child Care Management. The University Childcare Center operates based on the most stringent standards of national accrediting childcare associations with regard to child-to-teacher ratios, classroom sizes, and teacher training. UCC uses The Creative Curriculum for infants, toddlers, and twos as well as for preschool. Learn more about the University Childcare Center and inquire about enrollment.

The Child Development Lab (CDL) at the McPhaul Center is affiliated with the College of Family and Consumer Sciences and is located on the main UGA campus. The Child Development Lab uses The HighScope Curriculum for infants, toddlers, and twos as well as for preschool and the lottery-funded PreK classroom. The CDL is NAEYC* accredited.
