One of the hardest things about being a military family is getting re-situated on the childcare front in your new location. Whether you need full-time care while you work, a few hours a week to attend class or get your schoolwork finished, or even if you just want the occasional night out with your spouse, it's difficult to find that special someone to look after your children.
That task may have just gotten a little easier. The DoD is now funding memberships to sittercity.com, which provides access to profiles of in-home care providers to meet the needs of its clients. Also available are parent reviews and background checks, which are always nice to have. This service normally costs $120 per year, so it's a nice little perk!
