Non-traditional care was created for families who don’t need regular 40 hour/week, Monday through Friday child care, and it’s for those times when families who have other child care need a plan b. Families can choose to use the Non-Traditional child care program at LCLA on an as needed basis, or families can sign a short-term contract for a length and number of hours per week that fits their needs. Short-term contracts guarantee the family a space in the center for the hours they need for as long as they need.
Hourly Care: The family can call our 24 hour Reservation Line at 608-233-7373 to schedule hours up to two weeks in advance. The center is open every day from 7:30 AM to 5:30 PM with a two hour minimum for care. There is a one time registration fee of $25/child to process paperwork. Please see our ‘Enrollment’ tab for links to all required paperwork.
Short-Term Contracted Care: These contracts are available on a limited basis. The center can only accommodate a center number per semester. We follow University of Wisconsin-Madison’s calendar to determine semester schedules. UW-Madison students and faculty are given priority for these short-term contracts. Rates for care are still the same as the Hourly rate for care. Please see our rates for care tab under the Non-Traditional Enrollment tab.
To arrange a tour of the Non-Traditional Center, or to inquire about a contract, please call our Center Director, Chanel at 608-233-9970.
