The School Age Program serves military personnel and civilian employees by providing a caring and positive environment for their children. We offer before and after school care as well as vacation & summer camps. The Clubhouse is our interactive before and after school program designed for grades K-6. Children will continue to learn as they are taking part in fun activities.

Families not currently enrolled in the School Age Program must request care via our waiting list on

Fee Assistance Program

If you have a child between the ages 0-12 and cannot access installation-based childcare due to distance or waitlists, the Military Child Care in Your Neighborhood fee assistance program is available for U.S. Military and U.S. Coast Guard families. The program can help reduce and offset the costs of what families would pay for on-installation child care and what they would pay for care in their communities. This makes it easier for families to afford quality child care from local community providers. 


The program is available to Air Force Active Duty Members, Air Force Reservists on Active Duty, Civilian Air Reserve Technicians, and Gold Star Spouses who:

  1. Do not live near a DoD installation with a Child and Youth program or

  2. Are unable to access installation-based child care.

  3. If the sponsor is married, his or her spouse must be employed, actively seeking employment, or a full-time student.

Our Community Child Care Coordinator, Ms. Robbin Morris, can assist you to determine viable childcare options.

IMPORTANT UPDATE - Supplanting Policy, August 2022
Based on the Department of Defense Supplanting Policy, Hanscom officials are currently reviewing the list of children enrolled in the Child Development Center and School-Age Program. Supplanting occurs when a child currently enrolled is replaced by a child from a family in a higher priority category. Supplanting was paused in 2020 at the beginning of the COVID-19 Pandemic. Now, with child care operations returning to normal operations following the transition to Health Protection Condition Alpha last month, and the continuing shortage of staff, officials are working to determine if currently enrolled families will be impacted. Any families that are impacted will receive a 45-day written notification prior to being supplanted, and can reapply for care through

On August 1, 2022 Hanscom officials held a virtual/in-person Town Hall Meeting to discuss the policy and its potential impact on families at the base.
