Your SRIS Emergency Back Up Care programs provide employees with a safety net for those days when regular arrangements fall through. Back-up care supplements, rather than replaces, normal care arrangements and is a comforting emergency alternative when you need it the most. Your SRIS programs offer emergency back-up care for ages 3 years and above, and children with special needs.
Your SRIS Emergency Back Up Care programs are provided most often through employers who sponsor care for their employees with dependent care needs. We also provide emergency back-up care to the community at our cild care centre if space is available.
Employer-Sponsored Program Options
If your employer sponsors an emergency back-up care program, you may have access to a variety of back-up care solutions, depending on the programs in which your employer participates.
Emergency Back-up Care Centres
Centre-based back-up child care programs provide employees of participating companies with access to specific child care centres for their back-up care needs. These programs are delivered within Your SRIS childcare centres that have been designed and are managed to provide high-quality back-up care. Many of these programs occur within back-up environments with staff specially trained in back-up child care. To learn whether your company participates in a dedicated back-up child care program, contact your human resources, benefits, or work/life department.
