 Backup Child Care Available

Yale provides eligible faculty, staff, post-docs and students up to 40 hours of subsidized back-up child care per fiscal year (July 1 - June 30). These services are intended to assist parents and guardians in arranging care for their children when their usual caregivers are not available. The back-up child care service is provided through Caregivers on Call, which has a network of caregivers in all 50 states and services both major metropolitan areas and smaller communities. Due to its extensive network, parents or guardians may also use this service when traveling to meetings and conferences for work. To learn more and to register for the service, visit www.yale.edu/backupcare or call 432-8069.
