Become a Family Child Care Provider

The Scott AFB Family Child Care (FCC) program offers families alternative childcare in a less structured/home-like environment. FCC Providers are able to accommodate parents’ various work schedules with full/part-time, drop-in, weekend, and evening care.

Providers receive extensive training in child development, positive guidance techniques, CPR, first-aid, health, safety, fire prevention, nutrition, reporting of child abuse, and food handling before obtaining a license. FCC homes are licensed by the group commander in coordination with health, fire, and safety agencies.They are also monitored by the FCC Coordinator.

The program is seeking out the right candidates to provide childcare in their own homes. Providers are offered free training, free equipment, ability to set your own schedule, accreditation assistance, and multiple paid incentives. Please keep in mind that if you become a provider, you may be responsible for caring for children with special needs, which may include asthma, allergies, cerebral palsy and other physical ailments.
