 Waiting List

The Installation will establish a Waiting List when the spaces for each child age group are filled and there are no additional spaces to offer. The Waiting List is limited to patrons who are still actively seeking child care.

 When a space becomes available, patrons are offered a viable space.  A viable space is defined as any opening within the CYS delivery system to include Child Development Centers, Family Child Care Homes, School Age Centers, Homes Off-Post and Community Based Programs.  

Children transferring to the Installation whose parents have requested care prior to arrival are placed on the Projected Demand Sub-waiting List. This list is maintained by sponsor priority for care and date of request for care. Parents must update their information every 90 days to remain on the list.

Parent Central Services schedules appointments to acquaint parents with their child’s program. These sessions are an important part of the enrollment process and are offered at times convenient to parents. Orientation highlights include:

Deployment Support Services are established for eligible Army Service Members (e.g., deployed Soldiers, dependents of Army Fallen Warriors, Army Wounded Warriors assigned to a Wounded Warrior Unit, etc.).

Remaining Active on the Waiting List

On 14 December 2016, Fort Bragg CYS began using MilitaryChildCare.com (MCC), a centralized DoD request for care website. If you need to place a new request for care, or are on an existing waitlist at Fort Bragg, all of your child care requests will now be placed and managed on MCC.

Families not on an existing waitlist. If you are not on an existing waitlist at Fort Bragg, you may create an account on MCC at any time. Just follow the 4 simple steps below:

  1. Create an Account: Go to MilitaryChildCare.com to create an account containing information about your family, or login using an existing username and password.
  2. Search and Request Care: Search the system for the child care options that best fit your needs and submit your requests for care.
  3. Manage Requests: You can manage your requests for care from anywhere in the world.
  4. Update Profile: Keep your My Profile page up-to-date with important information.

For more information about MCC, call +1 (910)396-8110 or email.


Placing your Child

  • Parent Central Services will contact the sponsor and offer the first viable care option which becomes available.
  • Sponsors have 24 hours to accept or decline the child care space. Once space is accepted, failure to enroll child in allotted time will result in removal from waiting list.
  • Once a space is offered, a sponsor may delay the start date for their child for two weeks.
  • Sponsors who turn down care that meets their preference will be removed from the waiting list unless there are extenuating circumstances.

 

* The information compiled from these forms is used to collect sponsor information for CYS programs and to place sponsor on waiting list for program services.
