The University of Dubuque’s Marge Kremer Little Spartans Childcare Center is open Monday through Friday from 6:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.

Evening hours (Monday-Thursday) are available for students in the Life Program.

The Childcare Center is licensed for sixty children; ages 6 weeks through preschool. We offer preschool classes daily for both three- and four-year old children and are partnered with the Dubuque Community School District to offer free four-year old preschool.

The Childcare Center utilizes the Creative Curriculum in all classrooms. This is a nationally recognized Early Childhood curriculum that is child-centered and promotes learning through play. This teaching style encourages curiosity and first-hand learning experiences.
