University Child Care Committee



The University Child Care Committee (UCCC) works with Iowa State University students, staff, faculty, and the Ames community to promote affordable, accessible, and quality child care. The committee addresses the needs of ISU families and provides recommendations to the ISU Administration and Campus Child Care Coordinator. 


The Child Development Laboratory School first began offering a morning nursery school in 1924, as the beginning of the Child Care and Training Courses; Pammel University Student Apartment Complex Preschool (now known as University Community Childcare) was created in 1948 by student-parents; and the University Child Care Center at Veterinary Medicine was opened in 1997 to expand services for the child care needs of students, staff, and faculty. Today, the campus child care centers offer space for nearly 232 children, 6 weeks to 12 years of age. 

The University Child Care Committee (UCCC) was established by ISU President Parks in 1979 to advise the university administration regarding the needs of students, faculty, and staff members of the university community. The Committee will survey, study, and recommend ways and measures by which the needs might be met. In carrying out its assignments, the Committee is encouraged to cooperate as fully as feasible with the city of Ames and with all other appropriate public agencies and interested private organizations.
