Backup Care Now Available for All Graduate Students with Care.com

February 5, 2020

Care.com, a family care service that can assist students with backup care and finding caregivers, is now available to all degree-seeking graduate students at Brown. A Care.com premium membership includes access to a database of providers for a child, an elderly adult, home, pet, or tutoring. There is no cost to find care providers on the self-service site. Students can identify prospective caregivers and then discuss the cost of care directly with them.

Eligible graduate students can also take advantage of subsidized backup care for in-home or in-center childcare. Backup care is charged at a subsidized rate of $4.00/hour for in-home care and $10 per child per day at a child care center. Brown will cover five days of backup per calendar year. Questions?
