Due to high demand for enrolment, waitlist applications are being accepted for all programs. Full-time (five days per week) and part-time (two or three days per week) care options are available.

Please note that application to a waitlist is not confirmation of registration. The wait times for children under the age of three are a minimum of two years. The wait times for children three to five years of age are a minimum of 1 1/2 years. We accept applications for infant care from the time of conception onward.

Families waitlisted for care must notify Child Care Services of any changes to their contact information or UVic affiliation during this time.

For alternate care options, see Victoria Child Care Resource and Referral.

Families will be notified a minimum of 30 days in advance of an offer of placement in a child care program. From there, we will schedule a program visit. You will need to complete a registration package before your registration is finalized.

Access to care is in priority order as follows:

  • currently enrolled children (children already receiving care will be automatically placed in the next program level as spaces become available)
  • siblings of currently enrolled children who have been on a waitlist for at least 12 months
  • children of:
    • students
    • faculty and staff
    • UVic alumni (only when UVic families cannot fill all vacancies)
    • members of the broader community with no UVic affiliation (only when UVic families and/or alumni cannot fill all vacancies)
Parents must provide sixty (60) days’ notice in writing and complete the Withdrawal Form to withdraw a child from the Centre or pay the month's fee in lieu of notice.  Withdrawal takes place on the last working day of the month.
