The purpose of this report is to calculate and quantify military child care need in Washington, compare child care need to military program delivery, determine community fulfillment requirements, and provide a tool for military family advocates and service providers to reference. Information is constantly changing, and this report was developed with the intention of future updates. The Washington State 2019 Military Spouse Listening Sessions Report identified challenges impacting military spouse employment gathered from a series of listening sessions held across Washington with military spouses. Child care was identified as a key employment challenge, and this report expands upon that work. This report was compiled with support from the Washington State Child Care for Military Families Workgroup, testimonials collected from military families, installation staff, and child care workers, and data collection surveys administered to each major military installation in Washington that provides child care in addition to an extensive review of recent and historical reports on military child care.
