Bright Horizons Back-Up Care Advantage

Bright Horizons Back-Up Care Advantage

Bright Horizons Care Advantage is available to all benefits eligible faculty and staff, as well as students of The Laney Graduate School.


Bright Horizons Care Advantage is designed to provide temporary caregiving services so that faculty, staff, and graduate students can meet work and classroom-related responsibilities when breakdowns in routine care arrangements occur. Care recipients can be either children or adults and can be used for spouse/partner as well as care for yourself when needed.  Care is available nationwide.


Two options are available through Bright Horizons Care Advantage to help you manage your caregiving needs. Employer-sponsored membership to Care Direct (Sittercity) is available to you when you are looking to hire a caregiver for routine or temporary care. Back-Up Care Advantage (Bright Horizons) is available to help you when you experience breakdowns in routine care arrangements.

Back-Up Care Advantage

Go to work knowing your loved ones are in good hands. Back-Up Care Advantage provides 10 days of care per calendar year. Copays for care are $15/child/day with a maximum of $25/family/day for center-based child care and $6/hour for in-home child and/or adult/elder care.


Note: *Center-based child care is primarily used for the care of well pre-school age children. In-home care is used for all mildly ill-children and adults as well as school aged children in general.*
