On-Campus Daycare

The University of Lethbridge is proud to offer day care services, through a lease arrangement with University Kid's Campus Daycare Ltd., on our campus. The facility opened in January 2010 and has been a welcome addition to our campus to assist the University community with their day care needs.

The Day Care facility offers services to children aged 12 months - 6 years old and is conveniently located near the residence buildings in Aperture Park. Undergraduate students, graduate students and faculty members have first priority within the Day Care for available spaces. Should there not be sufficient demand within the first priority groups as outlined above, available spaces will be offered to second priority groups (AUPE, APO, ESS, and Senior Administration).
