That means quality care in a safe environment. Here at Dyess, we offer several types of child care. One option is Family Child Care (FCC). FCC offers quality and safe care by professionally trained military family members that provide care in a home environment. Our licensed providers care for no more than 6 children with only two under 2 years old in a home. More important than finding the right program is finding the right provider to care for your children. When visiting the provider’s home, ask thorough questions to see if that home will be a good fit for you and your child. The FCC program makes sure your children are cared for no matter the time, day or location you are working. Overnight, shifts or on call: they are safely cared for while you serve! Airmen returning from overseas deployment can reintegrate. Children with special needs can receive quality care. Unpack boxes or attend appointments without children/youth underfoot. It’s all covered! Most programs are free or provide an offset to reduce the parent’s out-of-pocket expense. You don’t have to interrupt your job or day’s schedule of events. AF FCC has your needs in mind!
