A Message from the Chancellor

We care very much about the children of our UCSB family. We also recognize that affordable, high-quality child care plays a crucial role in helping our students, staff, and faculty meet educational and career goals and achieve a satisfying work/life balance.

We are pleased to offer the members of our campus community a wide variety of options for excellent and reliable child care programs and services, both on campus and in Isla Vista. This brochure provides an introduction to the activities and resources available to our faculty, staff, and student parents, as well as information about financial assistance for low-income families, services for children with special needs, an emergency locator service, campus lactation facilities, and more.

The Orfalea Family Children's Center and our other child care programs are near and dear to the hearts of my wife, Dilling, and me, and we are honored to give them our full support. We are grateful to our Child Care Advisory Committee and our many dedicated colleagues who contribute their time and talents to meeting the needs of children and their families. We are all committed to working together to enhance the quality of life for current and future generations of our UCSB community.
