Welcome to the Back-Up Care Advantage Program® (BUCA®)

Bright Horizons back-up care programs provide employees of our clients with a safety net for those days when regular care arrangements fall through. Back-up care supplements these arrangements and is a comforting emergency alternative when you need it the most. Bright Horizons back-up care is employer sponsored. Employees of our clients may have access to a variety of different back-up care solutions depending on the programs in which their employer participates. Please log in for more complete information on the Back-Up Care Advantage Program.

Please note an important new policy to protect against potential exposure to Measles among children, families and caregivers:
In an effort to continue to help protect those in our care, especially infants who cannot be vaccinated, please see below on precautionary measures for our back-up care programs:
  • Any care recipient that has the measles may not receive back-up care for 21 days from the start of his/her illness.
  • A care recipient cannot receive back-up care for 21 days if he/she has either been diagnosed with Measles, or if he/she has been exposed to the Measles and has not been vaccinated.
Thank you in advance for informing us if you believe your child may be impacted by this policy, and please note that it is important that you comply with this policy at the time of care.

Please note Bright Horizons policy to protect against potential exposure to Ebola among children, families and caregivers:
Any child with a household member who is being monitored for symptoms of Ebola for any reason; or who has travelled to an Ebola-impacted country will not be eligible for care for a period of 21 days from the date that household member began being monitored for symptoms or departed the affected country. If after 21 days, both the child and the household member do not exhibit any symptoms of illness, the child will again be eligible for care. This same policy also applies to any adult care recipients.

In addition, if any child attends a child care center or school that has been closed for a health reason relating to Ebola, that child will not be eligible for care until that center or school re-opens and the child does not show any symptoms of illness.

While our policy exceeds CDC recommendations, we believe it is appropriately conservative given the young and vulnerable population of children we serve and the nature of child care itself, where teachers and caregivers are in close contact with children through play, diaper changing and toileting, feedings and other normal activities.

Thank you in advance for informing us if you believe your child may be impacted by this policy, and please note that it is important that you comply with this policy at the time of care.
