What is Family Child Care?
The Family Child Care (FCC) Program at Kadena Air Base provides quality and dependable child care in a safe and healthy home environment. The Air Force defines FCC as care provided for a child in on-base quarters, other than the child’s own home, for more than 10 hours a week and on a regular basis.
FCC providers are certified, insured, and support families in need of:
How are rates determined?
FCC providers are self-employed and set their own rates. Exceptions to this are the select in-home providers who voluntarily participate in the FCC Subsidy Program. In these homes, weekly rates are pre-determined by the MSG Commander and are based upon total family income (TFI).
Unlicensed Care All Family Child Care homes on the installations must be certified to operate by the Mission Support Group Commander. Unlicensed care is classified as providing 10 or more hours per week for children in your home regularly. Non-compliance is subject to consequences such as housing privilege loss.
Who can participate in the FCC program?
If you are interested in working out of your military housing while staying at home with your children, then being a certified Family Child Care provider may be just for you!
To find out more about FCC space availability or to obtain information on becoming a certified provider, please contact the Community Child Care Coordinator, Cynthia Huntsman at DSN 634-0514 or via email at: firstname.lastname@example.org.

We have two nationally accredited School Age Care locations that provide quality school-aged care for children ages 5 through 12 attending elementary school on Kadena Air Base. We offer before and after school care with transportation to and from school. When school is not in session we provide all-day care. During winter, spring and summer breaks, we operate weekly camps, offering field trips, extended activities and many guest speakers.
Our School Age Care offers a chance for your child to explore his or her individual interests by empowering them to make responsible, personal choices. Our trained staff takes pride in offering a variety of Boys and Girls Clubs of America and 4-H programming. Both School Age Care locations offer clubs and environments centered on the interests of the children.
In addition to the everyday activities, our School Age Care locations offer a 10-week summer camp with weekly field trips and endless hours at the base pool. We also have family events like spaghetti night, family chili cook-off, Soup-4-You and our popular ice cream socials.
