Enrollment provides families a single online gateway to Military Child Care

Families at Seymour Johnson AFB have access, as of October 2015, to a Department of Defense (DoD) website designed to simplify and improve the child care request for care process. (MCC) 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 relatively 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 waitlist management tools, and provides reports that help programs better plan for future placement needs.

Through, 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 waitlist even after being offered care or enrolling in another program.

Families at Seymour Johnson AFB who were on waitlists were automatically transitioned to the new web-based system. These families will retain the original date of their request for care, and all program enrollment processes will remain the same.

For additional information, go to or contact the Help Desk by calling the toll free number, 855.696.2934 or emailing

Give Parents a Break Program

This program offers free child care to families who may be experiencing stress due to a parent's TDY status, recently moving to the area, an illness in the family, having a special needs child, unique circumstances or other hardships. The program is offered once per month and is sponsored in part by the Air Force Aid Society. For more details on program dates or enrollment requirements, call us at 919-722-1197.


The NACCRRA website provides valuable information on the Air Force's Growing Spaces initiatives (QFCC, HCC, OCC, OMCC, & OMCCIYN) as we continue our efforts to support families seeking affordable, quality care when on-base care is not available or nearby.
