The Hanscom Family Child Care program offers families alternative childcare in a less structured, home-like environment. Family Child Care Providers are able to accommodate parents’ various work schedules with full and part-time, drop-in, weekend, and evening care.


Providers receive extensive training in child development, Positive Guidance Techniques, CPR, first aid, health, safety, fire prevention, nutrition, reporting of child abuse and food handling before obtaining a license. FCC homes are licensed by the group commander in coordination with health, fire & safety agencies, and are monitored by the Family Child Care Coordinator.


Hours of operation and fees charged by each Family Child Care Provider are a matter of private negotiation between the provider and the parents (unless the family is enrolled in the subsidy program).
