Spots Are Full At UAB’s New Child Care Facility

UAB’s new early learning facility is carefully designed to support faculty and staff success by providing affordable child care services.

The University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB) has inaugurated a new Early Learning Center to address the growing childcare needs of its employees; and believe it or not, spots are already full.

The center offers reduced tuition and discounted services to UAB’s faculty, staff, and students, providing a “practical and financially sustainable solution,” according to Brian Burnett, Ph.D., Senior Vice President for Finance and Administration.

As previously mentioned by BLACK ENTERPRISE, on-campus early learning programs have also been a focus for other institutions like San Antonio College, which established a free Head Start center on its campus.

A five-year collaboration between the Association of Community College Trustees and the National Head Start Association seeks to encourage more college campuses to establish Head Start centers. The initiative addresses the needs of nearly 4 million U.S. college students who simultaneously juggle roles as students and parents.
