Introduction

TodayCare Children’s Center provides unique child care programs for the children of Regions Bank employees. A team made up of experienced child care professionals provides the comprehensive care that your child needs. The Alabama Department of Human Resources licenses TodayCare Children’s Center. Regions Bank subsidizes the cost of the programs as an employee benefit. The types of care offered and descriptions are:

Transitional Child Care is for parents returning from maternity leave or who have recently adopted. Transitional child care is available for up to 24 weeks upon your return to work.  Care will be individualized to meet your child’s needs.  The fee for Transition Care is $25.00 per day, or $125.00 per week.

Back-up Child Care is for days when your regular child care arrangements are not available. Examples include: school holidays or teacher in-service days; child care is closed; or your nanny is ill. Employees are allowed 50 days per year (based on calendar year) to use back-up care at their discretion. The back-up program is based upon using creativity and imagination to stimulate and teach outside a normal developmental curriculum. Children will have the opportunity to paint, draw, build with blocks, play a board game or even perfect their computer skills. Children will also have the opportunity to play outdoors. The fee for Back up Care is $15.00 per day, per child.

Our goal is to provide parents or guardians with a child care choice that is easy to make. We will provide a safe and caring environment for your child when participation in the regular school or care routine is not possible, and you still need to go to work.

Admissions

TodayCare admits children without regard to race, color, sex, religion, national origin or ancestry. We also do not discriminate on the basis of special needs as long as we are able to provide a safe, supportive environment for your child.

Parents are encouraged to visit with their children prior to admission to familiarize themselves with the center and meet our staff. Preliminary paperwork can also be completed at the time of the pre-admission visit.  If a pre-admission visit is not possible, we will be happy to familiarize you with our program and center when you arrive with your child.
