About Childcare & Family Support Services

Welcome! Childcare & Family Support Services at UW Tacoma offers a variety of resources to assist you in your success as a student. Juggling work and a family while trying to achieve an education can be extremely exhausting and difficult at times. Our hope is to provide support and assistance throughout your experience and fulfill your needs to help you reach graduation and beyond.

We offer financial assistance through the Childcare Assistance Program (CAP), resources to find childcare, a lactation station for breastfeeding mothers, events and activities, and a list of additional parent resources.
