 The LWCC is sponsored by two main bodies: York University students (via the Student Centre student levy) and CUPE Local 3903 (formerly CUEW/SCTTE Local 3) (via financing provided via contract negotiations with the university). The Centre is designed to provide a positive childcare option that is directly responsive to the specific needs of students and part-time educational workers, and which works to supplement and complement existing childcare facilities on campus - in other words, to provide licensed part-time childcare.

The main objectives that guide development and operation of the LWCC are as follows:
    (a) to determine and address the particular needs of the student and part-time
         educational worker members at York University;
    (b) to act as liaison with parties interested in childcare;
    (c) to develop and maintain a flexible licensed childcare and a Resource service;
    (d) to oversee daily management including attending to long-term planning and
         the establishment of objectives;
    (e) to oversee the security, financial operations and policies of the LWCC;
    (f) to encourage involvement of representatives, particularly parent
         representatives, in the administration of the Centre.
