Additional Discounts at Local Child Care Facilities

CWRU has partnered with Kindercare and The Music Settlement to offer additional child care discounts to members of our campus community. 


CWRU employees and students are eligible for a ten-percent tuition savings towards standard, weekly tuition rates at KinderCare. When contacting a KinderCare child care center, mention that you are a Case Western Reserve employee or student and request the Case Western Reserve Tuition Savings. Tuition rates and operating hours vary by center. Contact the center directly for specific program information, participation status, space availability and tours. Visit KinderCare's website to find a location near your home or near the university to find answers to frequently asked questions or to learn more about KinderCare School Age Programs. 

The tuition savings are available:

  • At participating KCLC locations including the Cleveland Children’s Academy, KinderCare® Learning Centers and Champions® Before- and After-School Programs. 
  • For children of all ages and can be applied at KinderCare and Champions.  

KinderCare provides back-up care—we encourage parents to set up an account on the KinderCare portal. Contact Benefits Manager Jen D'Amico with any questions.
