Family Child Care provides a safe, developmentally appropriate home environment to care for children so parents can focus 100% on the McConnell mission. Working under contracts with parents, our licensed FCC providers offer high-standard care for 6-week to 12-year old children in government housing.
The McConnell Family Care Provider Office is currently recruiting new providers. Prospective providers are trained, screened, and approved by applicable agencies. The FCC Panel meets to approve or disapprove applicants. All orientation trainings are free and are held in the Child Care Office. Anyone who is interested in becoming a licensed FCC provider must contact the FCC or NAF HR Office.

Family Child Care Providers undergo stringent certification requirements: 15 Family Child Care Virtual Lab School Courses (approximately clock hours), monthly unannounced home inspections, yearly background investigations, annual training (24 hours), and certification in ServSafe and CPR/First Aid for children 2 weeks to 12 years.
According to our Air Force Instruction (AFI) 34-144, 11.17 states, “Residents providing uncertified child care residing in government owned and privatized housing are notified of the requirements when providing care for more than 10 hours a week. Uncertified care will be investigated by the Family Child Care Coordinator, accompanied by the Flight Chief or Force Support Squadron Commander/Director (or designee). The individual will be provided with a written request to complete the certification procedures and to cease providing care until they become certified. Security Forces will be contacted if there are suspected violations of law and the Family Child Care Program notifies the Privatized Property Management office.”
