Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, the health and well-being of our faculty and staff has been and continues to be a priority. The forced closure of schools, daycare centers and many children's camps has resulted in heightened stress for our faculty and staff with young children or with other dependent care responsibilities.

We have created this webpage to support you. As you search through and utilize these resources and services, please keep in mind that Ohio State does not endorse any dependent care option. If you are aware of a resource that is not included, consider sharing with employeefeedback@osumc.edu.
