Registration & Wait List

Because of the high demand for quality childcare, there is a wait list for the UAB Child Development Center. The average wait time for infants and toddlers is 12-18 months. Wait times for older children are typically shorter but vary greatly. 

Use the buttons below to be added to the CDC wait list, and to pay the $30 per family non-refundable application fee. Once a space becomes available, you will be notified via the information provided on the application. If at any time you wish to be removed from the wait list, please notify the CDC in writing.

Tours of the UAB Child Development Center are available by appointment on Thursdays and Fridays from 9 to 11 a.m., and 2:30 to 4 p.m. For security reasons, we do not allow drop-in visits until after your initial tour. Please note, you must be a UAB employee to access the Child Development Center.
