Child and Family Development Center


The Department of Family and Consumer Studies has made the difficult decision to close the Child and Family Development Center (CFDC) at the University of Utah. Our last day of operation will be Friday, October 8, 2021.  UKids President Circle will expand their center to include the space previously occupied by the Child and Family Development Center and open October 18, 2021.  

CFDC families need to apply at: to receive priority placement at the new UKids expanded center.  Unenrolled families interested in applying for placement at UKids President's Circle, Monday - Friday full time, should follow the same link. 

The FCS Department and the Center for Child Care and Family Resources are committed to making the transition as smooth as possible for the parents, teachers, and most importantly, the children they serve.
