Changes to Child Care Services 

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, we are not currently offering part-time spaces in any of our Child Care programs.

Child Care Services has expanded! 

We are delighted to announce the opening of two new centres on November 5th, 2018.  Salal Place and Juniper Place have space for 16 children each, for a total of 32 additional spaces for 3-5 year olds. If you have a child between the ages of 36 months and age 5, we encourage you to submit a wait list application.  For more information, click the Latest Update button at the top of this page.

Child Care Services at UVic

University of Victoria Child Care Services has been providing safe, quality child care to the UVic community for over 40 years.

We offer full-time and part-time care options for children from infancy to 5 years of age. However, child care spaces are limited and there are wait lists for all programs.

In striving for excellence in child care, UVic Child Care Services believes that quality is achieved through:

  • recruitment of qualified early childhood educators,
  • programming that enhances the social, emotional, spiritual, intellectual and physical growth of each child,
  • meaningful involvement of families in the child care experience and respectful communication with families,
  • the diversity of the community, and
  • valuing the collaborative connections with the university.

To ensure a safe environment for children who have life-threatening allergies to peanuts and other types of nuts, all Child Care Services facilities are designated "peanut and nut safe." Children, staff and visitors are asked to bring only meals free of peanuts, nuts, nut butters and oils.
