Child Care Center FAQs
Can I tour the Kean University Child Care and Development Center before my child is enrolled?
It is required for parents to tour the center prior to enrolling. This gives the parents a chance to see our school and understand if the school is the right fit for their child's education.
Are part-time spots available?
Because we are a school and not a day care, it is recommended that students participate in school for a full day (until 4:30 p.m.). There are students who come to school three, four or five days a week. Tuition is based on how many days a week a student attends.
What is the cost of tuition?
Tuition rates are based on whether the parent is a student, faculty or alumni of Kean University or not. Tuition rates are adjusted at the beginning of each school year. Please contact the director for current tuition rates.
Do you accept children with parents not affiliated with Kean University?
Yes! While we give priority to students whose parents are affiliated with Kean University, we do offer spots for students in the community. We have many students who come to us from outside of Kean who want to join our school.
Does the Kean University Child Care and Development Center provide food for their students?
Yes, food is provided based on the amount of time a student is in school. Breakfast, snacks and lunch are provided for all students. Dinner is also provided for students who participate in the evening care program.
Can I visit my child during the school day?
Yes! Parents are always welcome to come visit our classes any time throughout the day. Many parents become involved in classroom activities, and the children enjoy it when they get parent visitors.
When does the Kean University Child Care and Development Center close?
We follow Kean University's calendar and are closed when Kean is closed. There are certain days school will be closed for teacher professional development. Also, the center is closed for vacation for two weeks in August. Calendars for the school year are provided at the beginning of the school year and upon request.
How can I get more information about the program?
You can contact our director for additional information or read our parent's handbook.
