We all know how valuable and vital McConnell's Child Development Center, School Age Care and other youth programs are in maintaining the mission. When our Airmen's families are cared for, they can focus on tasks at hand. At the end of the day, however, there are limitations to availability in the CDC and that's where Family Child Care comes in. That's where we need YOU.
In an effort to incentivize families both in base housing and beyond the gates to undertake the process of becoming an FCC Provider home, a number of financial opportunities have become available to those who may be interested. You can see some of the incentives above in the graphic, but there are a number of other ways to make the most of being an FCC provider! Check out the full list below!
Many families choose Family Child Care homes because they like the family environment and the smaller number of children. Home-based programs provide a consistent caregiver for your child and may offer flexible hours if you need care in the evenings or weekends. Families with multiple children also like that siblings are cared for together rather than separated into different age groups. Family child care homes are often less expensive than center-based child care programs, but rates within your community may vary. You can learn all about FCC here.
We're always looking for new FCC providers and we're working with partners to help make the process easier on you. So, even if you just have questions, don't wait and call us today!
