Preschool Openings In Hospital's Star-rated Child Care

The Child Care Center at University Hospitals Parma Medical Center has full-time and part-time openings in its preschool classrooms for children ages 2 1/2 to 5 years old. Experienced teachers provide individualized activities that promote the social and academic skills needed for Kindergarten and beyond. Children are assessed throughout the year and teachers partner with families to set goals for their children. 

The hospital's Child Care Center, located in UH Parma’s Health Education Center, 7300 State Road, educates 180 children of hospital employees and community members. Children are grouped by ages, with classes for children ages six weeks to five years old (pre-Kindergarten). More than half of the Center’s teachers and assistant teachers have degrees in education and all participate in continuing education classes. The teachers are certified in CPR and trained in first aid and communicable diseases.

The Center is open from 6:30 a.m. – 6 p.m. Monday through Friday. Parents can enroll children on a full-time or part-time basis based on their schedules, and UH employees receive a discounted rate. The Center provides diapers, formula and meals for all of its children. The Center has been recognized with a two-star Step Up to Quality ranking and is working toward four stars. In addition to the children enrolled throughout the year, over 30 school-age children attend the Center during summer break.
