Back-up Care Guide

Five steps to schedule your Back-up Care days: 

  1. Visit https://backupcare.kindercare.com/ and create a profile. 
  2. After your Family Connection profile is created, register your child(ren) ages 6 weeks to 12 years old.  
  3. You’ll then be presented with three choices for enrollment: Child Care, Waitlist, or Back-up Care. Select “Backup Care.” 
  4. Make a last-minute reservation for care or schedule up to 30 days in advance! 
  5. Provide the center director with proof of your employment at UW.

Priority Access

Priority Access allows UW faculty, staff, and students to enroll ahead of other community families at the locations listed above. If there is not space available at the time you wish to enroll, you may be put on a waitlist. When space becomes available, families will be invited to enroll in the following order:

  • Families with currently enrolled children transitioning into the next age group and/or their siblings
  • UW faculty, staff, and students
  • All other community families


To begin saving, you must provide proof of affiliation (faculty, staff, or sutent) with UW and request to join the program. Tuition savings cannot be predated or retroactively applied. This discount may not be combined with any other tuition discounts, although eligible individuals may select the most favorable discount. Offer is non-transferable, has no cash value, and is subject to age acceptance. Not all centers may participate. Enrollment is provided on a space-available basis as determined by the centers. Additional restrictions may apply. See Center Director for details.
