Fa m i ly C h i l d C a r e ‌ Your child’s home away from home!

FCC homes serve children 4 weeks to 12 years of age in a homelike environment that allows siblings to be in care together. Parent fees are based on total family income and follow DoD fee guidance as in other Ft. Belvoir CYSS programs. The Fort Belvoir Family Child Care (FCC) program offers a variety of flexible care options that meet regular and missionrelated child care needs to include full day, hourly, before/ after school, extended care (overnight and weekend), special needs, and on and off-post care. Off-post care is offered in the counties of Fairfax, Prince William (Woodbridge, Manassas, Dumfries) and Stafford. Homes off-post must comply with AR608-10, to include ratios, training requirements, and USDA nutritional guidelines.

Only the best qualified applicants are selected to become certified providers. FCC applicants must complete a screening process before certification. They attend 40 hours orienta-

tion training, including child abuse, CPR and First Aid, medications/communicable diseases, business practices, nutrition and developmentally appropriate practices. Background clearances are performed on applicants, spouses, and children 12

years of age and older. An inhome family interview is conducted by the FCC Director. The homes are inspected by fire, health, and safety officials to ensure all operational requirements are met. After certification, providers receive on-going training, technical support, and unannounced inspections by the FCC Director, Training and Curriculum Specialist, and other proponents. Training and educational opportunities can lead to a Child Development Associate (CDA) or Home Accreditation by the National Association for Family Child Care (NAFCC). If you are interested in becoming an FCC Provider, new provider training classes are offered on a regular basis. For information about the FCC Program please call 703-805-9137/ 9134/ 9112.

School Support Services The School Liaison Officer is available to assist military Families with transitions to the local schools. Child, Youth and School Services encourages parents to utilize these services as we are dedicated to maintaining a positive and productive relationship between our Families and the schools that serve them.
