Families need options for childcare.  University Houses Preschool has served the UW and neighboring community for 44 years, and we are THE ONLY mixed-age, part-day, parent cooperative within the University Childcare system. The University (specifically the Office of Childcare and Family Resources) is issuing an RFP (request for proposals) that will effectively remove UHP from their existing location in Building 39 by June 2013.  Will you join us in asking the University of Wisconsin to allow us to keep our preschool?

Letter to
The University of Wisconsin Office of Child Care and Family Resources
The issuing of the RFP for Building 39 calling for single-entity control is premature; the reasons of efficiency and streamlining childcare are unjustified. Under their master plan for childcare, the University is effectively eliminating its only part-day, parent cooperative.

I support University Houses Preschool and their mission. I believe they provide a valuable service to the University community, and they should stay in the community where they have served so successfully for 44 years.
