Babysitting Program

In an effort to minimize barriers that may prevent students with children from graduating and help create a more family friendly environment for faculty and staff, Xavier University is currently creating onsite campus childcare.

XU Childcare Referral Program

This program provides students, faculty and staff with a list of students willing to provide supplemental childcare. This program is a referral program and Xavier is only responsible for coordinating information of student childcare providers and families seeking childcare. Screening, payment and coordination of schedules is the responsibility of the family and the student willing to provide care. Babysitting Certification is not required to apply for a position as a childcare provider. Xavier will serve as a referral program and assumes no responsibility for payment or negligence on the part of the parents or babysitters. In order to participate in this program, all participants will be required to sign relesases and all potential babysitters must complete an application.
