Child Care

The Ohio State University and Wooster Child Care Programs provide childcare and childcare reimbursement assistance to OSU employees located in Columbus, Wooster and Outlying Research Stations. This benefit was established to aid employees in securing reliable and affordable childcare, allowing them to more effectively fulfill their university work obligations. 

The Ohio State University Child Care Program provides quality, licensed childcare at its Ackerman Road and Buckeye Village facilities. The OSU Child Care Program was founded on the belief that high quality early care and education benefits the growth and development of the youngest children in our University community, as well as their families.

The Wooster Child Care Program provides OARDC and ATI employees, located on the Wooster campus and Outlying Research Stations, with financial assistance in obtaining quality childcare. The current program directly reimburses faculty, staff and student employees a portion of the childcare expenses incurred during hours when parents are working in an income generating capacity, or attending classes.

Education Benefits

There are many opportunities for personal and professional improvement and education, and dependent tuition assistance.
