UCCC offers amazing programming and engaging experiences for every child.  Our tuition ensures that we have the best resources in place to support each child’s social, emotional, and academic growth. Our standard tuition per child may vary based on a few factors, including; your child’s age, their enrollment status (attends school full-time or part-time), your family's participation in any of UCCC's tuition assistance programs, and/or the number of children from your family that are enrolled at UCCC. 

UCCC offers both full-time and part-time childcare slots to our families.  Most of our children attend full-time, attending five days per week (Monday – Friday).  We have a limited number of part-time slots available as well. These openings are full-day and either two-days (Monday and Tuesday) or three-days (Monday to Wednesday or Wednesday to Friday) per week. 


University City Children’s Center partners with the YWCA Head Start and Youth In Need Early Head Start Programs. We will also work with families eligible for Child Care Assistance provided by the Missouri Department of Social Services. Please click the link for more details and see if your family is eligible.

We offer need-based tuition assistance and consider every request individually. For more information, please contact us at
