Emergency Back-up Child Care for Employees

Your Kids ‘R’ Our Kids Emergency Back Up Care programs provide employees with a safety net for those days when regular arrangements fall through. Back-up care supplements, rather than replaces, normal care arrangements and is a comforting emergency alternative when you need it the most. Your Kids ‘R’ Our Kids programs offer emergency back-up care for ages 3 years and above, and children with special needs. Your Kids ‘R’ Our Kids Emergency Back Up Care programs are provided most often through employers who sponsor care for their employees with dependent care needs. We also provide emergency back-up care to the community at certain centres if space is available.
