School Age Care Programs
The School Age Program is designed to support working parents of children ages 5 to 12. This program features a safe, age-appropriate focusing on building skills for life, which promotes social, physical, and cognitive development. The program offers both full-day camps during Spring & Summer breaks. Full-day camp during most school closures excluding federal holidays. We strive to reinforce family values and emphasize the uniqueness of each child by promoting positive attitudes and validating self-worth.
Frequently Asked Questions
Parents register their children through www.militarychildcare.com. Parents will create an account, then search for Sheppard AFB School Age center and complete a request for care. Once they have submitted a request for care MCC.com will populate our waitlist with the child’s priority. If a spot is currently available then the parents will receive an offer of care from us, then they would simply accept the offer and complete the enrollment packet. If a space is not currently available then the child will remain on the list until either a space becomes available or until care needs identified by the parent are no longer current. One important note is that parents have only 48 hours to accept if an offer for care is presented. After 48 hours the offer for care expires, we with withdraw the offer and move to the next child on the waitlist.

Parent Advisory Board
Parents are always welcome to visit and assist with their child's care to the extent that their duty permits.
The parent Advisory Board/involvement is a committee of all the CDC programs in conjunction with other CYP’s. 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.
