Family Child Care
Family Child Care (FCC) is a Program that oversees the care of children in affiliated on-base or off-base homes,and certifies applicants who wish to operate a home-based child care facility under base jurisdiction. It provides ongoing support and resources to providers, and advertises the program within the Offutt community. Offutt's FCC Providers are well-trained professionals who provide quality child care for children ages 2 weeks to 12 years. While care is available during normal duty hours, it can also be available 24 hrs a day. It is aimed at accommodating parents who work shifts, rotating shifts, alerts, weekends, extended duty, or who have a child requiring specialized care. Parents seeking a provider or anyone interested in becoming a FCC provider may call the Family Child Care Office at (402) 294-9016.
