Back-up Care

If you are a corporate linked employee, back-up child care is available when your regular child care arrangements fall through. You can access this last-minute care for your children on a moment’s notice. Maybe your regular caregiver becomes ill, or there’s a school closure, or maybe you have to work on a scheduled day off. Whatever the case, this program is ready to fit your schedule with reliable, progressive child care for children up to 12 years old. Simply call your preferred Kids & Company early learning center or Kids & Company Head Office (1-866-MY-KIDCO) and reserve a space. Each centre has a back-up capacity to care for a number of registered children with little or no notice. You can even call us on the morning you plan to use this service. Availability of back-up care is on a first-come, first-served basis. But don’t worry, you’ll be offered the next closest Kids & Company centre if your first choice is full. To learn more about our Corporate sponsored programs, please visit our Corporate & Partner Services page. “It used to be that when the phone rang at 7:00 am a feeling of dread rushed through my body because it meant that my caregiver was sick. Kids & Company has relieved that by providing access to reliable, emergency child care. All I have to do is call, and I know my kids are safe and nurtured so I can get back to work.” – Katherine
