Berkeley Lab’s Back-Up Care Advantage Program through Bright Horizons provides employees temporary child and adult/elder care for up to 15 days per calendar year. Center-based childcare is $15 per child per day (maximum of $25 per family per day). Bright Horizons will waive the fee for the first use of center-based care in 2014. In-home child and adult/elder care is also available for $6 per hour. Back-up care is helpful when:
· Your child is mildly ill and needs care at home
· You are returning to work and need care for your parent while you transition back to a normal schedule
· Your primary care provider is unavailable
