Preparing for Childcare and Family Arrangements

WorkLife is Here for You!

We know these are trying times and we are faced with new challenges.  We want you to know that WorkLife is here to support you!  We have some resources that have been established for many years like backup dependent care.  Yet, our current shared experience causes us to make sure to look at these services a little differently while adding new resources.  This blog post includes a brief overview.

Keeping Kids Engaged Over the Summer

Dear Jaimie,

I've been super busy over the winter with my children's school and sports but school is about to end.  What can I do to keep my kids engaged during the summer?

Answer

The summer months have a tendency to sneak up, leaving some of us scrambling to find summer activities and/or care for kids. Well, here’s the good news – there are tons of options available in the Greater Lansing area for youth, some of which are available right here at Michigan State to help you prevent the summer-month-scramble.
