• This unique program for children two-weeks through 12 years of age offers parents a variety of options to include full-time, part-time, hourly shift work, and TDY with care for infants and children with special needs.
• While care is provided in a small ratio, providers promote well-planned activities to enhance the child’s physical, social, emotional, and intellectual development. A convenient loan service enables providers to checkout toys and supplies from the coordinator.
• FCC providers can participate in the Child and Adult Care Food Program and receive a monthly reimbursement according to the numbers of meals served. The provider can claim reimbursement for her own children up to 8 years of age, if the family’s income meets eligibility requirements for free or reduced priced meals.
