Supporting Military Families
Topic 6 Page 10
Community members can do amazing things to support military families and child care facilities play an integral role in supporting them.
When a parent is taken out of the family unit to undergo deployment or another assignment they are leaving their family without a caregiver. Suddenly all of the logistics of childcare fall on to one parent. With the increasing number of military spouses working outside of the home this makes the need for quality child care extremely important!
Child care professionals are the first line of support for military families in numerous ways.
Whether that is providing a safe place for their children to learn while they are at work or being a source of resources and reference for community resources it is an important job that should not be taken lightly.
