On Oct. 1, the Army Child & Youth Fee Policy for fiscal year 2012-13 was implemented for Child Development Centers, School Age Care, Middle School & Teen Programs, SKIES Unlimited Instructional Programs, Youth Sports & Fitness, and Army Community Based Programs.
New Family Child Care fees will be implemented on Nov. 1. Ten percent will be discounted from FCC fees and when applicable, FCC patrons are authorized a 15 percent multiple child discount.
The fee policy is based on Department of Defense policy and will be implemented for installation-operated CYSS programs. By law, military child care fees are based on total family income, not military rank or civilian grade. Military services subsidize fees on a sliding scale for families regardless of rank, grade or income.
The Army Child & Youth Fee Policy began transitioning to single child care fees for each TFI category in school year 2010-11, with a three-year individualized phase plan for each installation. The Army’s school year 2012-13 planned target fees were adjusted to comply with updated DoD fees and fee ranges.
