In an ideal world, all military personnel would have access to the convenience of quality, affordable on-post/on-base childcare.  In reality, however, many installation facilities are full with waiting lists to boot, and for some personnel these facilities aren’t conveniently located near where they live and/or work.  What’s a service-member to do?

Visit the Library’s “Early Childhood & Preparation” section and read our document titled, “Child Care Assistance for Military Families” where you’ll find a link to current information on various National Association of Child Care Resource and Referral (NACCRRA) accredited programs specifically designed for each branch of our military.  Whether it’s using their online child care directory, or researching and applying for Child Care Fee Assistance Programs, this NACCRRA website link is about helping families find and afford child care that meets their unique location and needs.
