COVID-19 Enrollment Update

UCLA Early Care and Education values the importance of family to our community of faculty, staff, and students. UCLA families in search of child care are encouraged to apply. To help you, we recommend learning more about the Affiliated and Community Applicant Pools, and alternative resources available in the Westwood and West Los Angeles areas. We appreciate your loyalty and ongoing interest in ECE!

While new families are still welcome to join the Affiliated and Community Applicant Pools, there are many unknowns regarding the future prospects for new enrollments in the three UCLA Early Care and Education centers due to the fluidity of the COVID-19 trajectory in L.A. County. Normally, spring is the time of year when we would be extending offers for summer and fall enrollment.

This year’s enrollment process has been quite different. We are acclimating to public health directives including daily temperature checks and health screenings for all; social distancing; using PPE for staff and purchasing supplies for new sanitization protocols; abiding by new licensing requirements such as limiting classroom capacities and quantities per location, and adjusting child-to-teacher ratios. In-person tours have been temporarily suspended as we are limiting non-essential visitors to our centers.

To inquire about enrollment for the Fall 2021 school year you are welcome to email [email protected] regarding availability for Spring-Summer 2021. We hope to know more about availability by then.
