“On the Road to becoming an FCC Provider Orientation Training” is an orientation for those who may be interested in opening a family child care program in their home or being a substitute family child care provider who goes into the homes of other providers to provide care when they are unable to do so. This is an excellent home business that supports the military mission and allows you to make a contribution to your families’ income! You will learn about the whole process of becoming an in-home family childcare provider or substitute care provider. This opportunity is available to those who live on post. We are actively recruiting infant/toddler homes where you can have three children under 3 and no children of your own ages 3-7. We also have a need for multi-age homes (6 children) where you can have two children under two and four children over two counting your own children in the ratio. You may not bring children to this briefing. Any person who is interested in establishing their own business in their home and has Fort Campbell ID card may attend.
