To be a model program providing quality, nurturing care and educational experiences for young children and their families of diverse backgrounds and abilities by building on the strengths of our community.



UMD Children’s Place is founded in the belief of the critical importance of the first years of life and the need to embrace the diversity of our world today.  The mission of UMD Children’s Place is two fold:

  • To provide quality, nurturing care of children
    while their families are at work or study.


  • To provide interdisciplinary educational opportunities for UMD students in order to enhance their classroom learning with practical experiences.







UMD Children's Place strives to honor, support and celebrate the diversity of its children, families and staff. Diversity is interpreted in the broadest sense and includes race, language, faith background, family structure, sexual orientation, physical ability and economic status.


The program is licensed to provide full time care to 46 children between the ages of six weeks and the first day of school.

Program hours are 7:30 a.m. – 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday. The program will be closed for all University holidays. Parents will be notified of any additional closings.
