Expanding Services to the Community

GOOD NEWS! UCLA Early Care and Education Opens Enrollment to the Community

APPLY NOW  Immediate openings for children 3 – 4 years old at the Early Care and Education (ECE) University Village Center ONLY. We are also accepting applications for infants and toddlers.

Grandchildren of UCLA faculty and staff, emeriti, and children of alumni families will be considered after current faculty, staff and students have been offered placement. Community families will be considered for enrollment at the University Village Center only after all affiliated families have been offered enrollment. Volunteers are treated as community families.

UCLA alumni families must provide documentation – either a copy of a diploma from UCLA (excluding UCLA Extension), or a transcript showing a minimum of two years’ enrollment at UCLA – prior to a child’s enrollment in the program.

Submit a Community Waiting List Application and non-refundable fee for consideration.
