Base housing residents can start a rewarding career that will allow them to earn an income and shape the future of the next generation as licensed Hurlburt Field family child care providers. Family Child Care is an alternative to the Child Development Center for families that need full-time care, evening care, weekend care, care for children with special needs, infants, and school-age children, and care during swing and midnight shifts. Individuals must be licensed by the Mission Support Group Commander when providing care in their base housing unit for more than 10 hours a week or on a regular basis.
Extended Duty Care (EDC)
EDC is provided for military or DoD civilian members who need care beyond the member's regular 50-hour per week child care arrangements and have to work late, work on the weekends, are experiencing a shift change or are called in to support a deployment. FCC providers will pick the children up at (or take them to) their regular child care arrangements on base. This is a FREE program. Contact the FCC office for more information. Parent Statement
Returning Home Care
When the Air Force is engaged overseas, members who return from duty are granted 16 hours of FREE care per child for military members returning home from deployment to spend time with spouses and catch up on family duties. Contact the FCC office for more information. Parent Statement
FCC for PCS
