On-Campus Child Care

There’s no question about it. When you’re a working parent, life is a complex juggling act. GW aims to supporting our working parents by offering a variety of child care options to fit every need.

Wellbeing Hotline

GW's Wellbeing Hotline is a GW paid benefit provided to help all faculty, staff and their household members save time by providing personalized assistance with life’s most important issues.  The Wellbeing Hotline saves working parents time and stress by providing information and personal matches to licensed child care providers for both regular and short-term or specialized needs no matter where they work or live.
