The UNIST Child Education Center(CEC) was established to provide care and support for the children of UNIST faculty, staff, and students.

The CEC’s curriculum is implemented according to the standards determined by Korean Education law. The standards for this curriculum are determined by the age of the children as well as other conditions regarding their development. The current curriculum is based on standards set in the National Childcare Program.

The aim of the National Childcare Program is to provide a standardized development and educational program to support the holistic development of children from ages 0-5 and to include coherent and cohesive content that will ultimately help children develop their understanding of what it means to be a responsible and active participant in Korean culture and society.

Tuition & Fee

The amount of government support for child care is different depending on the number of days a child attends the center. When a child fails to attend for more than 11 days, the rest of the support must be paid by his or her parents.
