Introducing evening childcare

Finding safe, consistent childcare after traditional working hours can be difficult.

To help, Penn is piloting an evening childcare program that will provide two evenings of care at the Penn Children’s Center, 3101 Walnut St., during the Fall 2012 and Spring 2013 semesters. Beginning Monday, Oct. 1., care will be available from 6 to 8 p.m. on Mondays and Thursdays.

The program is open to all Penn faculty, staff, and students with children between the ages of 3 months and 5 years. The cost will be $25 an hour for children older than 18 months, and $30 an hour for children between the ages of 3 and 18 months. A reduced fee, subsidized by the Office of the Provost, will be available for members of the Penn community with annual salaries below $60,000.
