Child Development Programs COVID-19 Online Resources

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 and Strong Beginnings. Part-day preschool, part-day Strong Beginnings and hourly childcare are currently unavailable. 

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.

Become a Family Child Care Provider!

If you're looking for a rewarding job you can do from home (on base), 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 2275 Liggett Ave. For additional information, call +1(253)967-3039 or +1(253)966-5993.

Recruitment Bonus: Up to a $1000 recruitment bonus will be provided to FCC Providers who successfully open their homes. Providers will receive payments over a twelve month period. Payments will begin upon home certification and enrollment of at least two children who are unrelated to the provider. Payments will be disbursed monthly with an initial payment of $120 and $80 thereafter (for the next eleven months). If the home closes or certification is lost during this time, all remaining payments will be forfeited. This is a one-time incentive.
