If you are new to Baumholder and looking for work, you can start your own home-based business by becoming a Family Child Care provider.
FCC providers work from their home taking care of children in a small group environment with a maximum of six children between the ages of 6 weeks to 12 years.
FCC providers offer full-time and part-time care, hourly, respite care, extended care in the evenings and on weekends. They offer the same program as a center, in a smaller environment.
Providers plan activities to enhance child knowledge, offer healthy meals and snacks, and children are cared for in a smaller multi-age environment.
FCC providers get certification to be FCC providers for the United States military.
Providers complete modules of education that can be used toward college credit.
Providers can also earn a child development associate, at no cost, which qualifies them to be a lead for assistant director positions in child development centers in the U.S. military system.
They can also continue to be an FCC provider in the States, earn FCC accreditation and maybe one day open their own day care. To find out more about how the FCC program works, call civ (06783) 6-6588.
