Family Child Care Information

What is a Family Child Care Provider?

A FCC provider is a licensed person who cares for children in their on-base government quarters.

What is an Affiliated Family Child Care Provider?

An affiliated FCC provider is a person that provides care in their home in the surrounding villages that are in compliance with the Air Force family child care standards and voluntarily submits to the same screening, training, and inspection requirements as on-base licensed providers.

Why become a Family Child Care Provider?

Becoming an FCC provider is a way to add to the family’s income without having to work outside the home, allows you stay at home with your own children and provide companionship for them. FCC providers have access to a large lending library and receive constant training to help advance your career.

Any military ID cardholder providing more than 10 hours of care a week, on a regular basis, MUST be licensed by the FCC Office. You risk losing your base housing privileges if you are providing care without an Air Force license.

If you care for 2 children for 5 hours each, that equals 10 hours of child care. 

How do you qualify?
*Must be at least 18 years of age
*Army, Air Force, CIV ID cardholders
*Must be physically and mentally capable
*Read, write, and speak English
*Hold a high school diploma or general education diploma (GED equivalent)

TRAINING
All FCC Providers receive training on child growth and development, child abuse prevention and reporting procedures, as well as positive guidance. FCC Providers must complete the Air Force Module Training Program within 18 months of receiving their license. There are 15 modules addressing basic child development areas.



TAX REMINDER
Parents must request the FCC Provider’s Federal Tax ID number or Social Security Number (SSN) for income tax purposes. It is in violation of the Privacy Act Information Law for the FCC Office to give out a FCC Provider’s Social Security Number.
