What is it?
Kids in the Workplace provides school-age child care for children, Kindergarten through 12 years old, on school holidays when Bell Atlantic Network Services is open for business. Parents bring their children to work with them where they are cared for in a reserved space, such as a conference room or other vacant office space.  Children are signed in and out of care by their parent.
Who is eligible?
Bell Atlantic Network Services employees working in or near the locations where the program is operating are eligible to access this service for their dependent children. Employees are required to register children in advance to reserve space in the program.  Priority for care slots will be given to Associates.
When will care be available?
The dates for this program will be determined according to registration demand.  The hours of care are 8am to 6pm or customized according to location needs.
What is the cost?
There is no cost to the individual employee.  This program is funded by Bell Atlantic Network Services Group Companies, in separate initiatives with the Communications Workers of American (through the Advisory Council of Family Care) and the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (through the Advisory Council on Career and Life Strategies).
If your work location does not currently have Kids in the Workplace, please call your division office for more details.
