Conveniently located inside the CDC Annex, USAFA’s Family Child Care office provides you with resources and alternatives to center-based child care. We offer regular care of children in the home of a licensed provider. Care is provided on a full time, part time or hourly basis.
In an FCC home there are no more than 6 children present under the age of 12. The Air Force has developed a system to use in offering this program. Persons who want to operate an FCC home must meet certain base requirements before offering child care. Operating an FCC home in government quarters is a privilege granted by the base commander to persons who have satisfactorily completed training requirements, home inspections and agency screenings.
FCC is designed to ensure the health and safety of the children cared for are protected, and the operation of such homes does not detract from the quality of life of Air Force families. Meals served to the children in care meet the guidelines of the USDA child and adult care food program.
Children ages 2 weeks through 12 years of any active-duty, DoD civilians or primary contractors on or supported by USAFA are eligible. Child care is provided on an equal opportunity basis in all FCC homes. Children are required to have current up-to-date immunizations.
Seeking individuals who enjoy caring for children, especially those interested in providing infant care, special needs care and extended duty care (evenings and weekends).
Providers determine their own fees for full-time, part-time, or hourly child care (except for AF sponsored programs)
Approved to care for up to six children at a time
