Emergency Child Care
The United States Marine Corps (USMC) sponsors the Enhanced Extended Child Care Program (EECC) to offer child care to eligible USMC sponsors when they can not use their regularly scheduled child care program. Reasons include unexpected duty assignments, extended duty hours, family illness, and family emergencies. Eligible sponsors include military families with employed spouses, single parents, and dual military families. Children must be 14 years of age or under to use the EECC program. Although the USMC pays for EECC program services, parents must continue paying their regular child care fees.
