Military Child Care

MilitaryChildCare.com (MCC) provides a single online gateway for families to
access military-operated or military-subsidized child care options worldwide
across all Services. The site enables families to create a household
profile, conduct child care searches, submit requests for care, and manage
their requests at any time and from any location. 

The DoD site offers a more streamlined approach to finding and requesting
care, expedites placement through a standardized request process and
waitlist management tools, and provides reports that help programs better
plan for future placement needs.

Through MilitaryChildCare.com, eligible families can search and request care
for full day and part day options in facility-based and home-based programs
