The Baby Ph. D. Childcare Network is
dedicated to developing and supporting high-quality community-based childcare for children 0-3 years old whose families live and work in the Hyde Park and University of Chicago Communities.
The Baby Ph.D. Childcare Network is a program of the Hyde Park Neighborhood Club. The Network has two primary goals:
1. To provide professional mentoring
and support to childcare providers and
nannies serving children 0-3 years old.
2. To provide childcare consultation, information,
and referral services to families with children
0-3 years old.
Baby Ph.D. Childcare Network services are coordinated through the Hyde Park Neighborhood Club's Childcare Resource Center & Lending Library.
Network members and affiliates include the Little Inspirations Child Care Center, twelve daycare homes, local families nannies, and family and friend caregivers.
