Service to the University

Hilltop serves the University of Kansas in many ways. First, the Center provides quality child care and education for a wide age range of children whose parents study, teach or work at KU. As many of Hilltop's parents are students, Hilltop's service is directly related to the university's outreach and affirmative action goals. As more and more parents with young children become students, the need for high-quality campus child care will continue to grow.

Hilltop also provides an on-campus work site for students. Students may serve as classroom aides for course credit or as part of a class assignment. Their work at Hilltop may include conducting special projects, implementing research, or observing teachers, children or special activities.
