WASHINGTON, D.C., October 4, 2005 - Covington & Burling announced today that it has opened a full-service daycare and early learning children's center, with capacity for nearly 100 children ranging from infants to 4-year-olds. Covington Kids Early Learning Center was designed to serve Covington lawyers and employees in conjunction with Bright Horizons Family Solutions, the world's leading provider of employer-sponsored child care, early education, and work/life solutions. The Center operates from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. during regular business days for the firm.
"We are sensitive to the importance of balancing work and family, and believe this new facility will help our lawyers and staff better achieve this balance," stated Stuart Stock, chair of Covington's management committee. "We strive to offer ways to support our lawyers and staff and to aid them in handling the unpredictable demands of their job while continuing to care for their families."
In addition to this new facility, Covington offers a number of other benefits for working parents. The firm has long had a part-time policy, under which any lawyer can set up a part-time schedule that meets his or her needs. A number of the firm's lawyers have become partners while working part-time. The firm also offers primary caregivers 90 days paid leave upon birth or adoption of a child. Non-primary caregivers are offered four weeks of paid leave within four months of birth or adoption of a child.
