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.
Childcare Network Funding
The Baby Ph.D. Childcare Network is primarily supported by a grant from the Child Care Initiative of the University of Chicago and University of Chicago Hospitals. Additional support comes from the Hyde Park Neighborhood Club and family membership fees.
