Do you need a few hours to focus on your research, writing, or scholarship? Based on feedback from students, UChicagoGRAD and the Family Resource Center are piloting a free drop-in childcare opportunity for graduate students beginning Monday, May 14th, and continuing for the remainder of spring quarter and through summer quarter! Monday through Friday, we will have three morning slots for children and three afternoon slots for children available every day to provide childcare on a first-come, first-served basis. Students may sign up to have their child(ren) at the FRC while they work elsewhere in the building for up to nine hours per week. (Depending on participation, we may adjust up or down the nine-hour limit.) Please note, this service is only available to students and not to non-student parents. The student parent must stay in the building while their child is at the FRC. You may check childcare space availability and sign up for childcare space here or take your chances and drop by to see if space is available. Please email email@example.com if you have questions.
