Registration for Child Care:
The Hourly Child Care Center, at both the Ogden and Davis Campuses, provides hourly care to WSU students' children. Faculty and staff may use during the summer, and throughout the year as space is available. PRIOR TO ATTENDING parents must complete the New Parent Application or the Returning Parent Application. Returning parents get priority to apply through two weeks of registration each semester. New parents can register after the two weeks have passed. Once parents complete the application, they will be notified via email for next steps.
Two types of care:
Available for class time only on-going and consistent basis. Extended hours may be requested for a maximum of two hours through Extended Hours Request form.
Available as alternate to primary care provider and only if space allows. Parents must call as soon as possible prior to attending to confirm space is available. We will not be able to accommodate the hours needed if the center is at maximum capacity.
The Hourly Child Care Center provides hourly care to WSU students' children while they attend classes or partake in academic events. Students must apply and have set schedules for attendance.
Backup care is offered at WSU Ogden for students and faculty/staff when their primary care provider is unavailable (if the center has space that day). Call the center to see if they are available when needed.
