Your Family, Your Choice
Families who prefer quality child care in a home setting can rest assured that our Family Child Care services are both nationally accredited, and highly regulated.
Family Child Care solutions are available to fit virtually every schedule, deployment, or special need.
FCC providers undergo a stringent licensing procedure, including training, home inspections, and background checks. This includes a 15 module license qualification training, as well as 24 hours of recurring annual training. FCC providers are also CPR and First Aid certified.
To ensure the safety and well-being of the children in their care, FCC providers undergo regular, mandatory training requirements and receive monthly, unannounced home observations. Meals and snacks for children are planned to meet USDA requirements, and FCC homes are smoke-free environments where no pets are allowed around children. Children’s television viewing is limited to one hour of child-appropriate programming, and FCC providers are trained to use only positive discipline techniques—physical punishments are strictly prohibited. In addition to the above measures, FCC providers and family members complete annual security clearances.
The program is seeking out the right candidates to provide childcare in their own homes. Providers are offered free training, free equipment, ability to set your own schedule, accreditation assistance, and multiple paid incentives.
Providers receive extensive training in child development, positive guidance techniques, CPR, first-aid, health, safety, fire prevention, nutrition, reporting of child abuse, and food handling before obtaining a license. FCC homes are licensed by the group commander in coordination with health, fire, and safety agencies. They are also monitored by the FCC Coordinator.
The minimum requirements to become a provider are applicants must be at least 18 years of age, holds a high school diploma or GED, seeks continuing training and education and is open to new ideas about family child care. Also, all family members over the age of 12 must be able to pass a criminal background check.Call to Get Started
