About Family Child Care
Family Child Care provides an alternative to Child Development Center care for families who need full-time, drop-in, evening or weekend care for infants to school-age children. Child care is avaliable for parents working swing and midnight shifts and UTA weekends.
FCC providers are well trained professionals - most have completed or are seeking degrees. They and their family members undergo thorough background checks, consenting to monthly unannounced home inspections for fire, health and child safety. In addition, their homes are closely monitored on a regular basis by the FCC coordinator.
Family Child Care is an excellent career opportunity for stay at home spouses who wish to contribute to the family income while caring for their own children. Providers are limited to care for no more than six children including their own.  New Provider's Orientation classes are held quarterly for anyone desiring to offer child care in their home.

It’s easy to find the child care you need.

This secure Department of Defense website provides a single gateway for you to find comprehensive information on military-operated or military-approved child care programs worldwide. With, you create an account and maintain a family profile that you can access at any time from any location. By improving and simplifying the child care search process, helps you make informed decisions about your child care needs.

Expanded Duty Child Care Program
Expanded Duty Child Care (EDC) assists families in obtaining high-quality child care from licensed or affiliated providers when weekly parental workloads, due to extended duty hours, exceed the standard 50 hours of care a week that families are already purchasing in child care programs on or off base.
Air Reserve and National Guard may also use the program during primary UTA weekends if no other care is available. At present this program is at no cost to the parent, however care must be coordinated through the FCC Coordinator before using.

AFstarsm2.gif Air Force Aid Program
The Family Child Care Program assists the AF Aid Society with the Volunteer and PCS Child Care Programs. AF Aid pays for child care for volunteers working on base and for 20 hours of child care for E6 and below who are PCSing in and out of the base. For eligibility and further guidance parents should contact the Airman and Family Readiness Center, (228) 376-8728 or DSN 591-8728.
