Historic legislation marks the largest employer-sponsored child care program in U.S.
Thirty years ago, Congress passed the Military Child Care Act of 1989. This legislation laid the groundwork for the model system that emphasizes high-quality care for children, a commitment to professional development for staff, and affordability for families. You can display this poster from Military OneSource to commemorate this milestone and highlight the mission of military child care programming. This congratulatory message from Rosita of Sesame Street will surely put a smile on your face.
We salute the Department of Defense as you celebrate the 30th Anniversary of the Military Child Care Act. A huge thank you to all of the teachers and staff that work to support more than 160,000 military-connected children around the world every day.
