Little Hokie™ Hangout Cooperative Play Group

The Little Hokie Hangout is a flexible, subsidized care program primarily for Graduate Student families. This program is designed to meet your specific needs, and is a parent-cooperative child-care program open to Virginia Tech students and employees (faculty and staff pay an increased rate) with children ages 2-5. Care is provided for three sessions each day: morning, afternoon, and evening, and the center is open from 8:30 am-6 pm Monday-Friday. We follow the Virginia Tech calendar for closures and holidays. Tuition for the program is dependent on the number of hours per week that each child is enrolled, and the number of parent worker hours contributed. Little Hokie Hangout is located at 600 Prices Fork Road in the Luther Memorial Lutheran Church. For more information or a tour, email

NOTE: Little Hokie Hangout can only accept a limited number of applications for children who will be less than 2-1/2 years (30 months) old on their first day. Current students and their siblings will have priority. All other placement decisions will be based upon the date the application was received.

Little Hokie Hangout is opening for Summer II and Fall 2020!

We know that families need more support now than ever, and are planning to open our doors July 8 to help families that need child care as they adjust to the constraints of working, studying and researching from home. Our staff will be trained in heightened sanitization procedures, and will be wearing PPE at all times, for everyone's protection. We will provide more details to enrolling families about measures that will be taken, and what you can and should do to contribute to a successful experience. Questions: Email Fall application will be made available next week. 

For Summer II session, use this online application. The deadline is June 15.
