Applying for Child Care
Childcare services are offered to eligible patrons at Fairchild AFB for full-time (weekly) care, before-and-after-school care, and hourly care. All services except hourly care and special openings require a completed application and time on a placement list. Specific procedures for the Resource and Referral Program can be found in SVYC Operating Instruction 34-4. All forms and program information can be downloaded from the CDC Document Library.
Parent Advisory Board
Your Involvement Matters!
Parents are always welcome to visit and assist with their child's care to the extent that their duty permits. The Parent Advisory Board (PAB) is a committee of all the CDC programs in conjunction with other Child and Youth Programs (CYP). The PAB acts only in an advisory capacity, providing recommendations for improving services. The Chairperson of the PAB is a parent.
The Parent Advisory Committee selects a chairperson. Each chairperson attends the Program Parent Advisory Board meeting. The Parent Advisory Board meets with the Airman and Family Readiness Center Flight Chief and Center Directors at least quarterly and with the Mission Support Group Commander at least annually. The minutes of the parent advisory meetings are forwarded to the Mission Support Group Commander for review.
If you are interested in attending your center's parent advisory committee, please see your center's director for more information.
