Supporting Students and Their Children

At Moss Street Children's Center, we help UO student parents succeed in their academics by providing nurturing care for their children at an on-campus location. We offer programming that follows the academic calendar, on a term basis, to best fit students' schedules.

We celebrate the diversity of family structures and cultures, both in the community and in the larger world. We welcome children with varied abilities and challenges, and we emphasize the development of all children's social-emotional skills to help them grow into kind, respectful citizens.

First priority for Moss Street enrollment is given to UO student families. If space is available, we will also serve UO faculty and staff families.
