Key elements of our infant program include:

3 Tips for Going Back to Work

Having quality child care in place is essential for your return to work. While this transition can be stressful, there are steps you can take to make it more manageable. Here are three tips for going back to work:

  • Ask for flexibility. Before you return to work, ask your boss for a flexible arrangement. Working from home or working on an altered schedule can help you ease into this new lifestyle.
  • Prepare for pumping. If you are breastfeeding your child, you will need to make arrangements for pumping at work. Speak with your boss to create a space and schedule for pumping.
  • Make time for yourself. After you have worked a full day and taken care of your child, you deserve some time for yourself. Take a bubble bath or watch your favorite show to unwind.
