Joint Base McGuire/Dix/Lakehurst (JB-MDL) Child and Youth programs is a comprehensive system of programming providing quality care, resources, support and recreational activities for children and youth ages 6 weeks to 18 years of age. We believe that quality programming must meet the needs of all children and youth in the community. Our facilities have created a warm, happy, safe and healthy place for children and youth. Our programs are designed to provide activities and services which are developmental in nature and promote the physical, social, emotional, cognitive, creative and positive character development of each child/youth while responding to the unique needs of military families. Quality, affordability, and availability are our primary goals. All of our child care programs are certified by DoD and accredited by a national accrediting agency.
The Family Child Care Program provides the JB-MDL community with an alternative to other child development programs and for evening, weekend and shift care. The FCC program offers quality childcare in a home environment. This may be a good choice for parents who want their child cared for by the same provider each day and in a small group setting. Both hourly and drop in care are available.
FCC providers are adult military dependents living in JB-MDL housing area who have been through training and meet requirements before becoming licensed. All FCC providers are regularly inspected by safety, military public health, fire prevention and the FCC staff.
Current FCC provider listings are available at CER, CDCs and the FCC office.
