Welcome to the JBLE Langley Family Child Care (FCC) Program

In-home child care is the most tailored form of child care.  FCC Providers operate independent, self-employed businesses; and, have assumed a very important responsibility to care for children in their homes.  The goal of the JBLE Langley FCC program is to ensure affordable, accessible and available child care services to military-connected families in our community.

Family Child Care (FCC) offers in-home care for children ages 2 weeks to 12 years, in either on-installation housing or homes in civilian communities. FCC offers families childcare when alternative weekend, evening care, swing and midnight shifts, and special needs care is required.  The groups are multi-age and smaller ratios than in the child care programs.  FCC provides families with a viable alternative to large group childcare.  FCC providers are certified by the Air Force.  Extensive training and direct oversight of each program assists providers in growing as professionals while offering care in a nurturing home environment.
