The Air Force expanded the number of hours it will provide free child care for families of military members deployed or on remote assignments beginning April 1, 2018. The change provides 16 hours of pre-deployment, 16 hours each month during deployment or remote assignment, and 16 hours of post-deployment care per child. This increases free care from a maximum of 48 hours total for those same periods previously. To apply, Airmen must provide a copy of deployment or permanent change of station orders and complete an Air Force FCC Expanded Child Care Request. Airmen can visit their installation family child care office for more information.
