What to Expect After Enrolling at UADC

After submitting the application and deposit, guardians receive a confirmation of their registration from administrative staff, and a copy of the UADC Family Handbook, which contains all sorts of helpful information about UADC center policies and procedures.

UADC strives to provide the best possible transition into our community from your current childcare setting. To that end, we believe it is important to make a connection between you and your classroom teachers from the get-go. The first step in this process is a meet-and-greet video meeting between family members that would like to participate and lead teaching staff, in order to go over classroom routines and your child’s specific goals and needs.

Some families choose to make the first day in the program a half-day so that child(ren) can best acclimate to the new school environment. Teachers will discuss a transition plan that will work best for your family during the meet-and-greet.
