Berea College Child Development Lab (CDL)

High quality, childcare services are available to faculty, staff and students for children ages 6 weeks through third grade. Although fees are based on full time enrollment, children who attend school are charged a reduced rate. Administratively housed with the Department of Child and Family Studies, the CDL also serves as a learning laboratory for College students.

All full-time and part-time employees are eligible immediately after date of hire and children are admitted on a space-available basis.

Although the College subsidizes this educational facility, employees have a weekly charge for these services. Information regarding current rates and the application process are available from the CDL at 985-3620. Employees are required to utilize payroll deduction for childcare expenses and are encouraged to participate in the Dependent Care Spending Account (Flexible Spending Account) to maximize their tax savings.
