Family Child Care

The Family Child Care (FCC) program is an integral part of the Child and Youth Services (CYS) child care system available on Army garrisons. FCC provides quality home based care for children 4 weeks to 12 years old and is offered in government owned and government leased housing located on post.

FCC has unique qualities that make it a preferred choice for many Families. It offers flexible hours: full-day, part-day, extended /overnight, weekend and hourly care in a comfortable home setting. FCC also offers a 15% cost savings compared to Child Development Centers and School Age Care fees.

FCC Providers are vetted and only the best qualified candidates are recommended for certification. Providers must complete background checks and regular home inspections as a part of certification. They also receive paid ongoing training for professional development.

Army policy requires that anyone providing care on a regular basis for more than 10 hours per week must be certified through Child and Youth Services as an FCC provider. 

Providing unauthorized child care in government owned/leased housing puts you at risk of losing your housing privileges.  Unauthorized child care by an uncertified person puts your child at risk.

For more information on how to register your children in the FCC Program visit MCC.COM.


If interested in becoming an FCC provider, please contact Parent Central Services.
