Onsite Childcare Is A Must for Today’s Companies

Business Travel Made Child-Friendly

Recent reports show that spouses or children travel with a working parent over 40 million times each year while nearly half of all business travelers extend their trips for vacations. With numbers like these, it’s no surprise why so many companies are providing children’s programs that enable employees to travel with their children.



Of course, this is a two-way street where not only do companies need to provide the arrangements, but also a third party needs to offer them. The majority of resorts and hotels have shifted their focus from adult-only activities to family friendly activities so that they can cater to travelers with children.

A Step Up from Babysitting

Onsite childcare programs are expanding their boundaries and offering educational activities. At one point in time, the only type of care provided for working parents were babysitting services. The structure of children’s programs is changing and beginning to offer real substance. Nature programs, art projects, wildlife games, outdoor tours and sports activities are some of the newest additions to be seen with children’s programs.

It can be difficult to meet the needs of children of all ages, which is why working with an onsite children’s program can help fill in the gaps. These programs are available for companies to utilize when their employees go on a business trip. Onsite childcare programs provide childcare for all ages, from infants to teens. Naturally, teens are the hardest challenge, but even they can be entertained and kept safe while their parents work.

Benefits for Companies, Employees and Travel Destinations

For companies, these types of arrangements are a huge asset. They can select a resort that provides child-friendly activities and care while their parent employees are working, and employees are more likely to attend the event and concentrate on the information provided. This is an important aspect in today’s society where many working parents are single parents and have difficulty finding childcare arrangements for overnight and weekend business trips.

With this new demand that companies are facing, children’s programs are becoming a must-have for companies, and they in turn require hotels and resorts to provide these programs. Hotels are doing a good job keeping up with these new demands, and much of this is seen with the expansions that hotels are completing. Instead of focusing solely on five-star restaurants, spas and bars, resorts have been known to include playgrounds, kid-friendly pools and activity centers. It’s a new direction, but one that has many benefits to all parties involved.
