Did You Know? Individuals taking care of someone else’s children in base quarters on a regular basis for more than 10 hours per week must be licensed. Residents of base housing who knowingly provide unlicensed child care are in danger of losing their base housing privileges. The care in FCC is provided in the home of individuals licensed under AFI 34-144 guidelines. These licensed child care providers must complete (at a minimum) 24 hours of orientation, be certified in CPR/First Aid, complete AF child care training modules, obtain liability insurance and have their home meet fire prevention, health and safety guidelines. Please contact the FCC office for further details.

Last year’s Fantasy Flight!


FANTASY FLIGHT to the North Pole

What is a Fantasy Flight?

• Fantasy Flight is an actual flight to the “Fantasy North Pole” lasting approximately 45 minutes. • During the flight children enjoy games, snacks, and entertainment. • Upon landing, children enter the Magical Winter Wonderland for a day of games and activities, a delicious hot meal, and of course, a photo with Santa & Mrs. Claus.

Who is Eligible? • Military connected children ages 5-9, dependents of Active Duty, DoD Civilians Employees, National Guard, Reserve, and Veterans. • Children who were selected to attend 2017 Fantasy Flight are ineligible to attend the 2018 Fantasy Flight. Children that are selected to participate in the Fantasy Flight must clear FAA and be available on December 7, 2019 for a full day event from 8:00 a.m. - 6:00 p.m.; unfortunately we cannot accommodate late arrivals or early departures. Children must be comfortable traveling with a chaperon who may not be their parent(s) and must comfortably be able to ascend and descend stairs with minimal assistance. United Airlines has reserved chaperon slots for trained youth staff members, and school personnel to assist your children throughout the day.
