Locate Child Care

Emory offers a variety of options to help faculty, staff and graduate students secure child care for the time they are working, as well as when they’re not. Below are some useful resources:

e4Health

e4Health, provides parents with an opportunity to speak with a child care specialist over the telephone. This complimentary service is available to all Emory faculty, staff, and LGS students.

Emory Child Care Network

The Emory Child Care Network helps you meet the diverse demands and challenges of looking for child care. It was designed to provide parents discounts and priority admissions at licensed child care centers throughout Metro Atlanta.

Bright Horizons Back-Up Care Advantage

Bright Horizons Care Advantage consists of two programs to help you manage both Anticipated Care Needs through Care Direct (Sittercity) and Emergency or Unexpected Care Needs through Back-Up Care Advantage (Bright Horizons).

Emory Employee-Student Job Network

The Emory Employee-Student Job Network can help Emory faculty and staff looking to hire Emory students on a part-time basis to help them with work-life responsibilities such as babysitting, pet care, house sitting, lawn care, etc.

CDC Parent Network ListServ

The CDC Parent Network ListServ is a very popular listServ created several years ago by parents employed by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. This listServ can be used by employees and graduate students at Emory to locate:

resources, tips, and suggestions that are parenting related

nanny or nanny share, babysitters, family day care provider, parents morning out, child care center, etc.

specialists, learn about schools and camps in the area, share parenting advice, etc.

Due to its popularity, we encourage those who decide to join the listServ set up a folder in their inbox with a rule that all mail delivered from this listServ go directly to this folder. This avoids listServ email from overtaking your daily email and allows you to enjoy the listServ more. We also ask that you respect the rules of the listServ as the CDC is gracious in allowing Emory access to it.
