Web Icons 01Web Icons 03

Conveniently located inside the Eielson City Center, Suite 101, Eielson’s Family Child Care office provides you with resources and alternatives to center-based child care. We offer regular care of children in the home of a licensed FCC Provider. Care is provided on a full time, part time, or hourly basis.

In an FCC home there are no more than 6 children present under the age of 12. The Air Force has developed a system to use in offering this program. Individuals who want to operate an FCC home must meet certain base requirements before offering child care. Operating an FCC home on base is a privilege granted by the MSG Commander to individuals who have satisfactorily completed training requirements, home inspections and agency screenings.

FCC is designed to ensure the health and safety of the children cared for are protected, and the operation of such homes does not detract from the quality of life of Air Force families. Meals served to the children in care meet the guidelines of the USDA child and adult care food program.

Children ages 2 weeks through 12 years of any active-duty, DoD civilians or primary contractors on or supported by USAFA are eligible. Child care is provided on an equal opportunity basis in all FCC homes. Children are required to have current up-to-date immunizations.

For more information, or to request care, please visit militarychildcare.com or call Eielson’s FCC Coordinator at 377-3635.

This institution is an equal opportunity provider.
