Programs and Services

CFRC Fee-for-Service Programs

CFRC child care is available for students, faculty, and staff of the University of Nevada, Reno. To qualify for CFRC services, students must be enrolled in at least six credits with a degree program, and faculty and classified staff must work at least .50 FTE. Final decisions on enrollment will reflect the CFRC's commitment to serve children of diverse backgrounds and to maintain a balance of boys and girls. Preference is given to returning families and siblings.


There is a $50.00 registration fee. Tuition is calculated on a sliding fee scale based on annual household income and the age group of the child.

Infant/Toddler Program

The infant/toddler program provides care for children from birth to age three. Close relationships are built with each child through the care giving routines. In order to help children feel secure in their world, primary caregivers are consistent, following a group of children from birth through age two.

The preschool program services children ages 3-5 years. The curriculum is developed based on the interest of the children. The hands on activities encourage the children to be actively involved in the learning process.
