Childcare

About Childcare

UCF Downtown does not have an on-campus preschool or daycare, however HealthAdvocate, UCF’s Employee Assistance Program, is an employee resource, free to all faculty, and A&P and USPS staff, and their dependents, including children and parents.

HealthAdvocate’s Work/Life specialists can help locate childcare and eldercare resources in your area and provide availability and rates. These include nanny agencies, pre-school centers, childcare centers and summer camps.

There is also a self-search tool on the HealthAdvocate member website where employees can search for childcare and eldercare providers on their own.
