Back-Up Childcare

As well as regular care, the nursery also provides free back-up childcare to support you when your regular arrangements are unavailable or breakdown. For example, if your childminder or nanny is ill or on holiday, or you need to work on a day when you would not ordinarily do so. This service is also useful if:

  • You are transitioning back to work from maternity, paternity or adoption leave
  • Your child’s school is closed for INSET training or school holidays
  • You are travelling or relocating to or at Deutsche Bank

As an employee, you will get up to 20 days per child each calendar year, for children aged from three months up to eight years.

Places are limited and allocated on a first-come, first served basis, subject to capacity being available at the nursery. You can reserve a place up to one month in advance, up to and including the day when you need the care.

A maximum of 10 consecutive days of care may be reserved in a calendar month, and the same pattern of attendance cannot be reserved for more four consecutive weeks, to reflect the intent of the programme to support emergency childcare needs.

We recommend registering for the programme and visiting the nursery in advance of care being required. To register and reserve places (subject to availability), please log onto
