Child Care Overview
For more than 25 years GSA has helped federal workers gain access to work place child care facilities. Today, more than 100 independently operated, child care centers are located in GSA-managed spaces across the country. These centers offer safe, high quality care to federal workers and citizens. GSA also provides guidance, assistance, and oversight to federal agencies for the development of child care centers.

HOW TO GET CHILD CARE
More than 8,000 children of federal employees and citizens receive care in GSA-managed facilities. While federal employees must make up a minimum of 50 percent of child care customers, GSA child care centers are open to the community.
