Family Child Care

A Family Child Care (FCC) home is a base home approved by the Mission Support Group commander to provide child care services to military families and civilians. If you are in need of quality child care the Family Child Care Program could be for you! Any adult offering regular child care in privatized base housing MUST be licensed according to their lease contract. FCC homes offer an inviting setting, with a family atmosphere, where your child can participate in quality developmental activities and be properly supervised by a trained professional.

Parents' Night Out

Why choose the Family Child Care Program?

What We Offer

FCC is flexible

- Many providers can respond to the unique needs of military schedules such as weekends, evenings, and intermittent care.

- Care is available for infants six weeks to school-age children in one home, so siblings can stay together.

- Settings for children who do best in small groups.

FCC is safe

- Every provider and household members age twelve and older have in-depth background checks.

- Provider's homes are inspected by the Fire, Safety, and Public Health Departments annually or more.

- Unannounced home visits are made by the FCC Office to the home to ensure compliance with all regulations at least once per month.

- Only six children can be in care at any time, including the provider’s own children under the age of eight. Only two of these six can be under the age of two, including the provider’s own children.

- Providers purchase their own daycare liability insurance.

FCC is well-trained

- Providers have the same orientation training as all CYP employees, including CPR, First Aid, health, sanitation, food handling and disease prevention, child growth and development, child abuse prevention and reporting, appropriate guidance, setting up a home environment, USDA policies and menu planning and business practices before getting licensed.

- Providers complete military standardization modules to ensure they operate a developmentally appropriate home with developmental activities.

- Assessments of each of the fifteen modules are conducted to observe providers doing developmentally appropriate hands-on activities in their home.

- Providers join a network that meets monthly to exchange views and train on special topics relating to their profession.

- The FCC Office continually works with providers to provide training, support, equipment, and guidance.

FCC is quality

- Providers participate in USDA and serve nutritious meals.

- Providers follow the "Creative Curriculum" and offer a wide variety of developmentally appropriate activities for children to enjoy.

- Providers work towards their Child Development Associates (CDA), a national child care credential, and National Accreditation through the National Association of Family Child Care (NAFCC) showing their expertise in the field.

- Financial assistance is available to children on the CDC waiting list which allows parents' fees to match what they would pay at the CDC.
