What Is Knee High?

A Daycare … Cooperative?

Knee High Cooperative Daycare members are parents–students, faculty, staff of IU, and others–who contribute their time to provide care for all the children enrolled in the daycare. In return, members get a discounted rate (currently $225). Knee High is operated and run by families, with members making all the decision in its operation.
