UC Berkeley has partnered with Bright Horizons to offer academic employees back-up care when they need to work and their regular child or adult/elder care is unavailable. For example:
When your regular caregiver/stay-at-home spouse is unavailable.
When you are between child or adult/elder care arrangements.
When your child's regular child care center/school is closed, or school is conducted remotely.
When you need temporary care for your loved ones so that you can do your work.
(Please note that due to the coronavirus, care cannot currently be arranged for children or adults with mild illness).
