When you enroll your child, you will need to provide: Current immunizations record, Completed AF Form 1181, School information (for children receiving before and/or after school care), Diet and allergy statements as needed (all documentation must be from a medical physical),  local emergency contact information (other than you and/or your spouse). If you are just arriving to JBER, you may use your immediate supervisor and/or First Sergeant as your emergency contact(s) until you have established relationships with other reliable sources.


Training to become a licensed provider is completed on-demand and is self-paced. The Family Child Care program aims to have new providers trained and licensed within 30 days. The program continues to grow in positive directions and always looking for individuals who are able to provide care during swing, weekend, day, and evening shifts. The program also needs providers who can care for children with special needs. Please note your availability and skill level when applying!

We understand that choosing a child care environment for your child is a big decision. The JBER Family Child Care (FCC) Program offers a variety of child care options to meet your needs. Our licensed providers offer part-time or full-time care on base for:

  • Infants

  • Toddlers

  • Preschool

  • School age

If you are looking for a home environment, more one-on-one attention, and smaller ratios, a FCC home may be right for you!  FCC homes are independent businesses and prices may vary.
