Special to The Ansbach Hometown Herald
WASHINGTON – Families at U.S. Army Garrison Ansbach now have access to a new Department of Defense website designed to simplify and improve the child care request-for-care process.
MilitaryChildCare.com (MCC), which is now live for USAG Ansbach families as of June 29, provides a single online gateway for families to access military-operated or military-subsidized child care options worldwide across all services. The site enables families to create a household profile, conduct child care searches, submit requests for care, and manage their requests at any time and from any location.
The new DoD site – which is being introduced worldwide in phases – offers a more streamlined approach to finding and requesting care, expedites placement through a standardized request process and with wait-list management tools, and provides reports that help programs better plan for future placement needs.
Through MilitaryChildCare.com, eligible families can search and request care for full-day and part-day options in facility-based and home-based programs for children from birth through age 12. Families may remain on a preferred program’s wait list even after being offered care or enrolling in another program.
Families at USAG Ansbach who are currently on wait lists will be automatically transitioned to the new web-based system. These families will retain the original date of their request(s) for care, and all program enrollment processes will remain the same.
