McGraw-Hill has launched a backup childcare service to give its 1500 employees, based in Canary Wharf, access to emergency childcare in a bid to help staff with their work life balance.

Employees must register to use the emergency childcare service, supplied by My Family Care, but this is fully funded by McGraw-Hill and allows staff to book backup nannies, nurseries and childminders online or over the phone. McGraw-Hill are not only paying for the annual £50 registration fee but also offering their employees 3 free sessions of emergency childcare per year.

Emergency Childcare is available all over the UK at short notice or 3 months in advance. The successful service has been predominantly driven by parent recommendations. One of the main problems for working parents is managing their childcare responsibilities when their normal childcare arrangements let them down.

My Family Care is a specialist provider of family friendly employee benefits. Finding and arranging backup childcare can be time consuming and stressful, My Family Care provides quality and reliable backup care when you need it most.
