GIAL does not operate childcare facilities. However, SIL International operates a preschool facility on the International Linguistics Center and GIAL students and staff are eligible to use these facilities. The program is available Monday-Friday mornings only for children (birth to 5 years). Children may be enrolled as needed according to parents’ class or work schedules. Early enrollment is encouraged. For childcare rates and other questions regarding childcare services contact:
7500 W Camp Wisdom Rd
Dallas, TX 75236
If both parents are taking afternoon classes at the same time, it may be possible to make arrangements for childcare during that time. Some of the caregivers at SIL Childcare are willing to talk with parents and make private arrangements about caring for children.
In the past, there has been a program for school children through grade 5 from June through mid-August during the regular childcare hours. Contact SIL Childcare to verify.
If your child is ill and cannot go to SIL Childcare, please contact the Dean of Students for a list of volunteers who are willing to come and watch your child while you go to class. Also, if you, your spouse, or a friend would be willing to do this for others, please let the Dean of Students know.
