UF Early Childhood Collaboratory is an inclusive center and enrolls children who have at least one parent or guardian associated fulltime with any college or department of The University of Florida or UF Health. Undergraduate students must be full-time (12 or more credit hours for Fall and Spring semesters). Graduate students must be full-time ( at least 9 credits for Fall and Spring semesters).  Shands employees must be FTE .9 or greater.

UF ECC at Newell Drive and Baby Gator at Diamond Village were developed in partnership with the Colleges of Medicine, Public Health and Health Professions, Pharmacy and Shands. Parents who are undergraduates, graduate students, interns, residents, post-docs, fellows, and faculty of these colleges have priority for spaces in these two centers.

Children from the Gainesville community whose parents are not associated with UF may be enrolled on a space available basis.

Children may be placed on the waiting list after conception.

Eligibility questions should be directed to Ethel Rocha, Enrollment Coordinator ethelrocha@ufl.edu/352-294-1989.
