UA Little Rock Child Care Connections offers services to assist university students in their search for quality child care services while enrolled in courses at UA Little Rock.
All children need quality care, whether at home with a parent, being cared for by a relative, or in a child care setting. Quality care promotes the optimal growth and development of children. Additionally, quality child care allows the parent(s) to pursue and complete a college education.
The University of Arkansas at Little Rock has been awarded the Child Care Access Means Parents in School (CCAMPIS) federal grant that is worth more than $580,000 from the U.S. Department of Education. This grant will help pay child care expenses for low-income students to assist them in completing their college education. Child Care funding will be available to students who are eligible to receive Pell Grants.
The university has begun the search for a Director of Child Care Connections to administer the CCAMPIS grant. The position will be part of the Student Retention Initiatives Office and is open until November 8, 2021. Click the link below to learn more about the position and to apply:
