Back-up Child & Elder Care Program
VMware provides back-up child care and elder care through Bright Horizons’ Back-Up Care Advantage Program. The program provides access to quality child care centers and licensed in-home care providers when your regular care arrangements break down.
The Back-Up Care Advantage Program is available to regular full-time employees working at least 30 hours per week.
How it Works
You can use back-up care when you need to be at work and your regular child or adult/elder care is unavailable, for example:
- Your regular caregiver or spouse/partner is unavailable
- You are transitioning between child or adult/elder care arrangements
- Your child’s regular center or school is closed
- Your spouse/partner or parent is ill or needs temporary assistance
- Your child is mildly ill at home
VMware employees have access to the following back-up care programs:
- Center-based child care
- In-home well- and mildly-ill child care
- In-home adult/elder care
Registration is free and you pay a small co-payment for the care you receive. With the program, you receive up to 12 uses per employee, per calendar year.
