The mission of the Children, Youth, and Teen Program is to provide high-quality, affordable, accessible, and developmentally appropriate child care resources to military families. In collaboration with DoD and other local agencies, our goal is to support mission and family readiness.
To accommodate the needs of Marine Corps families, the Henderson Hall Off-Base Family Child Care (OFCC) program provides affordable, high-quality, developmentally appropriate child care in certified family child care homes within the National Capital Area. Off-base Family Child Care homes meet stringent USMC, DoD and local government requirements. OFCC providers are required to complete DoD training modules. The majority of the OFCC providers have the nationally recognized Child Development Credential. Many of the providers are also working on their National Association for Family Child Care Accreditation.
Subsidies are available to eligible families (see the priority list below). Families must be enrolled in the OFCC program to receive subsidies.
