Provost’s Priority Childcare Placement Program (PCPP) Application Process

Request for Consideration and supporting documentation for the Provost’s Priority Childcare Placement Program (PCPP).

In an effort to improve timing of access into on-campus childcare, this supplementary Provost Priority Childcare Placement Program (PCPP), provides a limited number of faculty members with priority placement on the UBC Childcare wait list in order to support strategic recruitment and retention priorities.

Tenure stream faculty candidates who are interested in being recommended for this program should discuss potential access with the head, director or selection committee chair in their academic unit. If supportive, Deans and Department Heads are then asked to advise the Housing & Relocation Services (HRS) office that they would like their faculty candidates considered for their program. UBC Childcare charges an additional monthly premium on top of regular childcare rates for two years for each daycare spot achieved through the PCPP.  The Faculty or Department is required to pay the additional per child monthly premium cost associated with PCPP-assisted childcare spots for all endorsed faculty members.

Please note – Please note Post Doctoral Fellows, Research Assistants and / or Associates and staff are not eligible for this priority stream, but are welcome to apply along with all other faculty and staff through regular channels with UBC Childcare Services.
