To many in the field of early care and education, back-up child care may be viewed as a stressful disruption that could interfere with attachment and be detrimental to continuity of care. This paper attempts to prove that high-quality back-up child care offered by employers actually fosters the development of resiliency in young children by providing them with a positive experience and opportunity to cope successfully when faced with a challenging disruption of their usual routine. The paper reviews research on resilience and the protective factors that help build this trait in children. The paper also discusses parents' positive responses in a survey about their children's resilience after spending time in back-up care. (Contains 11 references.) (EV)
