- Family 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.
Hourly Care is available for children 6 weeks-5 years at Clarkmoor Child Development Center and McChord Child Development Center. Reservations made be made up to 30 days in advance; visit WebTrac.
Hourly care is also available for school-age students. Call the centers directly:
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 253-966-5998.
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.
