Childcare
Child working on an experiment

Clarkson University has a partnership with Kinder Academy for University employees at our Potsdam campus to access childcare at affordable rates. 

Through this relationship with Kinder Academy, Clarkson has secured discounted rates to assist our families and will further supplement these rates based on an employee’s annual salary range. We also hope to continue to add more such relationships going forward to help our employees manage their childcare needs.
