“The children experience nurturing and freedom. The teachers seem to have endless patience. The diversity of children is also a plus.”

– ECEP Parent


ECEP provides care for infants, toddlers, and preschool children up to the age of eligibility for TK and/or Kindergarten.


While children of members of the UC Berkeley and general community are eligible for ECEP, prioritization is based on the following criteria:

  • First priority: Children of UC Berkeley students, faculty, and staff
  • Second priority: Children of visiting scholars, LBNL, UCOP, and other UC campus staff/faculty families
  • Third priority: Children of community families

Children with siblings currently enrolled in the program are given priority over new families.

This institution is an equal opportunity provider.
