GETTING STARTED - How do I use my Family Care Program?

Child Care Select Guide

  • Search for a center or site that is near you using the Search box above.
  • Schedule a tour of the center or site online or by phone with the center information provided.
  • When you enroll (or if you're already enrolled), let your Center Director know you work for or attend University of Rochester and that you are eligible for a 10% Child Care Select program.
  • Your Center Director will apply the discount on your next billing cycle.

To begin saving, students, faculty, and staff must present proof of enrollment or employment at University of Rochester and request to join the program. Tuition savings cannot be predated or retroactively applied. This discount may not be combined with any other tuition discounts, although employees may select the most favorable discount. Offer is non-transferable, has no cash value, and is subject to age acceptance. Not all centers may participate. Tuition program savings cannot be applied to The Children's School at URMC, as University of Rochester students, faculty, and staff already receive preferred pricing at this location. Enrollment is provided on a space-available basis as determined by the centers. Additional restrictions may apply. See Center Director for details.
