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 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 a FCC provider, schedule a time to interview to 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 Family Child Care 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 that you want them to have by placing them in a Family Child Care home. They will be in a stimulating in-home environment that will provide them with the nurturing and developmental materials and interactions they need to thrive.
