Expression of interest in childcare

We strongly recommended that you register your interest in childcare as early as possible as the demand for care is high but places are limited. Please note that registering your interest in childcare does not guarantee you a space and we advise everyone to register with other childcare facilities as well.

Priority of care is given to on campus TRU students, then faculty and staff.

Register your interest here.
