GFAFB Welcomes You To Family Child Care
Family Child Care providers offer in-home care for children (nursery rhymes for children) ages 2 weeks to 12 years as a supplement to the Child Development Center. These providers also offer alternative care such as weekend, flexible or extended hours and for very young infants or children with special needs.
FCC providers are required to undergo strict licensing requirements. They must be over 18 years of age, able to read and speak English, and in good mental and physical health. They (and their family members) must pass comprehensive background checks and complete a basic orientation program prior to licensing. Once licensed, monthly home (home of idioms) visits are conducted to ensure that every provider is consistently maintaining all Air Force standards to ensure the highest quality of care possible.
If you are interested in becoming a FCC provider, schedule a time (killing time origin) to interview so we can ensure a good match between both families. Have questions ready about their policies such as discipline, vacation and illness. It is important for you to know that FCC providers set their own fees. Prior to starting care in the home, families must sign a contract regarding policies and fees, provide a copy of immunization records of child/children, complete AF Form 1181 and if dual or single military, AF Form 357.
Feel secure knowing that you are placing your child in safe and supportive care by placing them in a FCC home. They will be in a stimulating, in-home environment that will provide them with the developmental materials and interactions they need to thrive.
