Have you been thinking about using the NIH Back-up Care program for your children? Did you know it also provides care for adults and even yourself? Worried that you might need to hold on to your 10 days of care for emergencies only?
During the month of September, NIH federal employees will be able to participate in the program without any of their days counted toward the overall limit of 10 days of back-up care per calendar year. 
Don't know where to begin? The first step is easy - register for the program. You can register for free, as well as learn more about this program and the costs, by visiting the NIH Back-up Care webpage at: 
If you have any questions about this program, please contact the Child and Family Programs Team, Division of Amenities and Transportation Services (DATS), Office of Research Services (ORS), at 301-402-8180. For additional information about NIH Child and Family Programs, visit:
