The Child Development Center at the Defense Supply Center Columbus serves the children of hundreds of military service members and Department of Defense employees. With many families working from home and adhering to social distancing guidelines, the center's child care staff found a creative way to keep in touch with children by creating virtual story time videos.
“We miss that day-to day-connection with them and know that they’re missing it too,” explained CDC Director Tracy Charles. “It’s a stressful and uncertain time right now. While we can’t see each other every day, we can do things to stay connected – to let children and families know we’re still here for them, we’re thinking about them and wanting to find ways to support them, and we’re excited about the day we can all be together again.”
