The Campus Child Care Center has had a 5 Star Kansas Quality Rating with the Child Care Aware of Kansas for 3 consecutive years. In addition, our facility is fully licensed by the State of Kansas, is approved as a childcare provider for Children and Family Services and serves students who are also parents. The Center provides an education program for children while parents are attending class or working on campus. We accept children from 18 months to 12 years old.
The Child Care facility is open to serve both day and evening students. If parents need to bring children with them while they attend class or work on campus, it is mandatory they utilize the Child Care Center. Young children may not be brought into the classroom or left unattended on campus while their parents are in class.
