Family child care providers are limited to caring for no more than six children at any given time. Providers receive the same training as he caregivers working in the child development center and are inspected monthly to ensure they are providing quality care for all children.

Parents who wish to care for children in their on-base home are required to become a family child care provider. Once a parent is approved as a provider, they receive supplies and equipment to assist in setting up their home for care.
