If you need FCC services ensure the provider is licensed. Each approved home, will have a license hanging in the home and a sign on the outside of the home.

Family Child Care is seeking dedicated people who love working with children: If you live on-base and want to care for children in your home or you are a military dependent and live off-base, you may be eligible to be a licensed or affiliated provider!
