Child and Elder Care

Childcare

Santa Clara University understands the need for quality child care for the children of our faculty and staff. Families have a wide range of needs - including infant care, preschool education, or individualized attention for special needs children, part-time care and one-time emergencies, after school supervision, and summer activities for school age children. Finding child care can be overwhelming, and often at just the wrong times.

We have compiled a variety of resources to support you in your search for the right child care needs. In addition, the University's daycare, Kids On Campus provides care for children of faculty, staff, students and alumni.
