Family Child Care (FCC) offers child care to children and youth from two weeks to 12 years of age. Care is provided in homes located on or off an installation that has been certified by the Mission Support Group Commander. One of the hallmarks of the FCC is its ability to tailor the types of care offered to virtually fit every schedule, deployment, or special need.
We deliver flexible care whether that be at nighttime, in evenings, weekends, or overnight. With no more than six children in each home, you can expect a more personalized form of care. We are far more than a babysitting service but a program that builds highly trained providers that you can trust with your children.
