After nine months as an “unofficial employee” at DCYF, 1-year-old Zoë was joined by colleagues last month during her graduation from DCYF’s Infants at Work Program.

The Infants at Work Program allows eligible DCYF staff to spend time with their infants within the first six months of their life while continuing to work.

"Infants at Work provides a positive work/life balance, honors the employee’s contribution to the agency, supports parent and infant bonding, parental well-being and healthy infant development,” said DCYF’s Chief Human Resource Officer Marcos Rodriguez.
