Army Family Child Care (FCC) homes are operated by military spouses who are certified child care providers and provide quality, developmentally and age appropriate activities in a home environment. The certification process for each applicant includes thorough background and reference checks, numerous home inspections and six days of extensive training. Parents can register at Parent Central Services on-base and receive a referral list of AMR FCC Providers. The advantages they feel a FCC home offer versus a larger child development center are the comfort of a home setting, smaller ratio and more individualized attention, increased provider/child interaction and decreased risk of illness. For more information, contact your Family Child Care Office or visit the Army Family Child Care website.
