MGH Backup Child Care Center
Warren Lobby, Suite 130
Unexpectedly without a caregiver for your children? Partners offers backup options for our employees. Backup care is intended to supplement rather than replace regular child care. The times when your family may be in need of backup child care include the following:
• When your child’s caregiver is ill or on vacation
• When your child’s child care center or school is closed
• When you have to work extra hours
• When there is a sudden termination in your child care arrangements
• While you are searching for permanent child care arrangements
The hours are Monday through Friday, from 6:30 am to 5:45 pm. It is not recommended that a child spend more than 9 hours per day at the center.
