Back-up Care

Back-up Care from GWU helps families ensure that their loved ones are cared for when their regular care arrangements are not available for any reason, whether holiday closures, sick caregivers, or other unexpected circumstances. Register today so you're ready to request care when and where you need it.

GWU employees each enjoy up to 5 uses of care per year. In-Center backup care is available at KinderCare Learning Centers. There is a $10 parent daily co-pay per child for in-center care, and a $6/hour co-pay for in-home backup care.
