Big Blue Family Care and Back-Up Care Solutions

Big Blue Family Care (BBFC) is a network of current UK students, who offer occasional caregiving, such as after school, nights, and weekends (i.e. child care, pet care) to families of UK faculty and staff. Each student caregiver has passed a UK-employee background check. Rate of pay and logistics are negotiated between the UK faculty or staff member and the student. Emergency back-up care is also available in some situations, but it is rare for students to have a full day to offer childcare.
