Family Child Care - (2 Wks - 12 Yrs)

The Joint Base Charleston Family Child Care Program offers parents a variety of options to include full-time, part-time, hourly, shift and TDY care for children two weeks through 12 years of age. FCC providers are trained to ensure they are familiar with and meet health and safety standards. As independent business owners, FCC providers have more flexibility than centers in the type of care they provide and the hours of operation. Providers offer diverse and rich experiences for children in their care and are monitored by FCC program staff to ensure they are offering the highest quality of care to children and their families.
