The Graduate School of Arts and Sciences has partnered with Care.com to provide a new benefit to students in the fall of 2017. As more details become available, they will be posted on this page.
Care.com allows families to search for, vet, connect with, and ultimately select caregivers in a low-cost, reliable and easy way. The site helps parents identify babysitters, nannies, child care centers, family day care, camps, tutors, and special needs providers. Parents can also find help to cover sick days, school closings, and other times when last-minute child care is needed.
GSAS will provide free access to a Care.com membership, subsidized backup in-home childcare and adult care, and subsidized backup care at child care centers.
Benefit will subsidize: 10 days of care per year for children and/or adults. Benefit year is from October 1 to September 30.
Rates for GSAS students enrolled in this benefit: $5/hour co-pay by credit card for in-home childcare and adult care, $10 per child per day at child care centers.
