Corporate Back-Up
Childcare Program

Companies choose to offer a back-up babysitter benefit to employees to decrease absenteeism and promote loyalty. If your company would like to support your parent employees through a corporate babysitter emergency back-up program, we can provide you with a custom quote today!

What is a Back-up Childcare Program?

Employers contract with a back-up care company to provide emergency babysitter benefits to their employees in case they experience a breakdown in their regular childcare arrangements. Many of the needs are last-minute, and may include:

  • Caregiver (including spouse) is sick
  • Employee must work overtime and regular caregiver is unavailable
  • Child is mildly ill
  • Caregiver is on vacation, has to go out of town, or has unbreakable commitment for the day
  • Vacations, holidays, breaks or early dismissal at your child’s school or daycare
  • Business travel requires care
  • Other unexpected disruptions

Employers provide subsidized coverage of their childcare in order for their employees to be able to work.

How does it work?

Companies contract with a back-up care company such as Our Loving Arms to offer the benefit. When a need occurs, employees contact our Agency to book care via our emergency backup care phone line. Employees are typically allotted a set number of hours per calendar year by their employer, employees may incur a small fee as they utilize the care.

Why should companies offer back-up care?

The benefits of a backup childcare program include:

  • Reduced absenteeism
  • Recruiting tool for best talent
  • Reduced staff turnover
  • Increased productivity
  • Higher employee morale
  • Peace of mind for employees knowing that sick childcare arrangements are available

How do I get it?

Please contact your human resources department to find out if your company offers an emergency childcare benefit. For more information about getting a backup care program started for your company, please call Casey at 941-677-8687 or complete the form to the right.
