Fees are based on the age of the child. Tuition rates may change with 30-day advance notice. UCLA Early Care and Education offers only full-time child care.

If your child's birthdate falls on and after the 16th of the month when they turn 24 months and/or 36 months, then the younger age rate applies.

Annual tuition rate increases are approximately 3% effective September 1, 2018.

Student Family Tuition Assistance

UCLA Early Care and Education provides two types of child care tuition assistance for families with at least one parent enrolled as a full-time UCLA student. In two-parent families, the second parent must work or also be enrolled in school in order to demonstrate need for care.

Please review each link on the page. UCLA Early Care and Education and the California Department of Education Child Development Division each provide some form of tuition assistance.

Immunizations Required

Effective immediately, all children enrolled at UCLA Early Care and Education are required to be current on all immunizations as outlined in the January 2016 State of California Department of Public Health "Parents' Guide to Immunizations Required for Child Care or Preschool" schedule IMM-222. Exceptions may be made based on written advice from the child's pediatrician.
