Child Care

Affordable quality child care is provided for children from 6 weeks through 12 years of age. Activities are geared toward school readiness and the social, emotional, mental and physical development of your children. To meet the needs of the JBLM community, childcare is offered in both on-base centers and homes.

Child Development Centers

JBLM child development centers are state-of-the-art facilities accredited by the National Association for the Education of Young Children. The centers provide full-day child care, part-day preschool, Strong Beginnings and hourly childcare for youth. 

Three of our centers offer Hourly Care. You make reservations via WebTrac or call the centers directly:

  1. Cascade School Age Center, +1(253)967-6710, option 2
  2. Clarkmoor Hourly Care, +1(253)967-5455
  3. McChord Hourly Care, +1(253)982-4166 or +1(253)982-4167

Additionally, while you’re at on-base functions such as Newcomers’ Orientation and Armed Forces Family Team Building classes, rest assured that your children are receiving quality onsite care from CYS via the Kids On Site program. For more information, call +1(253)966-5996 or +1(253)967-4767.

Quality in-home child care with FCC

Family Child Care providers offer loving, nurturing and professional care in an on-base home setting for children 4 weeks-12 years old. Providers offer part-time care, full-time care, before- and after-school care and extended hours.

Parents can expect professionally trained providers who offer developmentally appropriate learning opportunities. FCC providers receive the same training and support as the Child Development Centers and School-Age Program employees.

FCC providers and their homes must meet specific requirements related to health, fire prevention, safety and child development programming. Each provider and their home is certified by the installation, and providers and their Families must pass stringent background checks and home inspections by FCC, CYS and installation representatives.

Become a Family Child Care Provider!

If you're looking for a rewarding job you can do from home, apply today to become a Family Child Care provider and earn up to $2,000 a month. Make a difference in the lives of military children and their Families while working from home and caring for your own children. 

Free certification training follows you from installation to installation. Pick up an application at 2013B N. 3rd St. (Room 125). For additional information, call +1(253)967-3039 or +1(253)966-5993.
