Advising and Registration

You must first complete an advising meeting on the phone or in person in order to register for the U3 groups or be added to a waitling list.

If a spot becomes an available in a group that reflects the parents' request, it is possible to tour the childcare center and meet the staff there. In order to avoid any disturbances or excitement in the groups, visits can only be conducted after prior agreement and if there is a spot available. All questions about the U3 group childcare can be answered in advance at the Family Services Center of the Equal Opportunities Office.
