Back Up Care

In many cases, school and centers close for a number of different reasons – snow days, summer vacations, or school breaks. The Children’s Workshop provides back up care for working families during times when others might not. We love for your children to spend some time with us when your center is closed or unavailable. You will spend the day enriched in everything our program has to offer. 

What are the benefits of back up care?

  • - We are open on days when many schools and other childcare facilities are not; including snow days and
  •    professional days.
  • - It is a great way to check out a new school and see what other programs may have to offer your child.
  • - Back up care is convenient - give us a call when you need last minute care and we are here to help!
  • - It is an affordable way to provide care for your child in a pinch.
  • - Socialization is key in early childhood programs - back up care is a great way to provide your child with
  •    a different environment to socialize.
  • - It is available when you need it the most - unexpected home events, meetings, work, etc.
