We offer our university staff access to quality child care centers, child care financial assistance, parent resources for families, and event opportunities through the Office of Child Care and Family Resources (OCCFR). OCCFR supports campus child care and early education by providing administrative assistance, outreach and professional development, and child care tuition assistance to student-parents. The university works with affiliated and contracted centers on or close to campus to meet the care needs of faculty, staff, and students.
Employee Child Care Grant- The UW Madison Employee Child Care Grant was developed to help address the high cost of quality early education and care and retention challenges for permanent employees at UW Madison. The grant is funded by gift dollars from the Women’s Philanthropy Council whose priority is to fund infant care. Each year, 4-6 awards are given with an average award of $500. This grant is meant to provide support to those who do not have other options for financial assistance in meeting their child care cost challenges.
