Emory Child Care Network

The Emory WorkLife Resource Center created The Emory Child Care Network in effort to meet the diverse demands and challenges of Emory employees looking for child care. It provides parents discounts and priority admissions at licensed child care centers throughout Metro Atlanta. The Emory WorkLife Resource Center does not endorse or recommend any particular child care center and encourages all parents to carefully evaluate any provider they are considering to care for their child.


Tips for selecting and evaluating quality child care programs are available on the WorkLife website.


The Emory Child Care Network has approximately 175 child care centers in its network.
