Website provides families a single online gateway to military child care

Families at Luke Air Force Base will have access to a new Defense Department website Nov. 16 designed to simplify and improve the child-care-request-for-care process.

MilitaryChildCare.com provides a single online gateway for families to access military-operated or military-subsidized child care options worldwide across all services. The site enables families to create a household profile, conduct child care searches, submit requests for care, and manage requests at any time and from any location.

The new DOD site, which is being introduced in phases worldwide, offers a streamlined approach to finding and requesting care, expedites placement through a standardized request process and waitlist management tools, and provides reports that help programs better plan for future placement needs.

Through MilitaryChildCare.com, eligible families can search and request care for full-day and part-day options in facility-based and home-based programs for children from birth through age 12. Families may remain on a preferred program’s waitlist even after being offered care or enrolling in another program.

Families at Luke AFB who are currently on waitlists will be automatically transitioned to the new web-based system. These families will retain the original dates of their requests for care, and all program enrollment processes will remain the same.

For more information, go to MilitaryChildCare.com or contact the Help Desk by calling 855-696-2934 or emailing FamilySupport@MilitaryChildCare.com.
