Family Child Care

Our Mission

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 available for parents working swing and midnight shifts and UTA weekends.

  General Info

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

FCC Notice

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. Currently, this program is at no cost to the parent. However, care must be coordinated through the FCC Coordinator before using.

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.

FCC Subsidy Program

Keesler participates in the AF Subsidy Program assisting parents with costs beyond what they would normally pay if their child were cared for at the Child Development Center. To enroll in the subsidy program parents should ask their provider if they are enrolled and then contact the FCC Office to register. Fees are based on total family income.

Lending Locker

The Lending Locker offers new providers an opportunity to set up their in-home child care at no cost to them. Providers are eligible to check out children's furniture, educational materials, safety equipment, training resources, toys, books, games, music, arts & crafts supplies, strollers, outdoor play equipment and more. Call 228-377-3189 for more information on available equipment.
