Yes

A brief description of the child care program, policy, or practice:

UIC is fortunate to have the UIC Children’s Center with two locations on campus,which provides full-day early childhood education to 90-95 preschool-aged children of faculty, students and staff. By having childcare on campus, in addition to recruiting and retaining faculty and staff, it reduces GHG emissions as faculty and staff only have to make one trip for work and day care. The age range for the children at the UIC Children’s Center is two years and nine months to six years old.
