Welcome to U-GRO here in Lancaster, PA! We are proud to have been chosen to serve as the child care operator at HACC's Lancaster campus since 2008. My name is Kara and I'm the center director. I've been a part of the U-GRO team since 2012 and have a bachelor's degree in elementary education.
Our early learning center offers full- and part-time options in each of our programs, including Infant Care, Toddler, and Preschool. Our center is open to all HACC students, faculty, and staff, as well as our general Lancaster community!
Each program is taught by our talented team of teachers. Every staff member participates in training opportunities throughout the year to ensure we stay current in the field of early childhood education.
We’re committed to providing simple ways to keep you connected throughout the day while your child is in our care. With live streaming video, you can view your child’s classroom from any device or computer. Plus, get real-time updates with our family communication app.
We closely follow recommendations from state and local authorities, to maintain a clean, safe, healthy environment.
I invite you to schedule a tour today to learn more about our U-GRO Learning Centre in Lancaster!

I have been a member of the U-GRO team since 2012 and have a background as a preschool teacher. I love the close-knit feel that comes with being a smaller center! I enjoy getting to know all our children and their families, and working with our amazing team of teachers!
