Child Care Needs Assessment Survey
In the next few weeks, we will initiate the Child Care Needs Assessment Survey. At no time in recent history have the challenges of balancing child care responsibilities with Coast Guard duties and the workplace been greater. The 2020 Child Care Needs Assessment was contracted before we felt the impacts of COVID-19, but couldn’t have been more timely in helping us capture the impacts of child care on morale, retention and performance. This assessment and survey will help establish the foundation of current concerns and provide recommendations for review and action by the Child Development Services Program (CG-1112).
