Childcare services are offered on both the Adelaide campus and Waite campus.

The Adelaide Campus Childrens Centre and Waite Campus Childrens Centre are operated by an independent, not-for-profit association, Adelaide University Childcare Services Inc., in premises provided by the University.

The centres are available for use by staff, students and the general community. Full-time and part-time care is provided. The centres are open Monday to Friday, but closed on all public holidays and for several weeks during Christmas and New Year.
