Default Army Paying For Daycare?

My parents have my 3 yr old nephew for the next year. My brother and his wife are deployed. Apparently, the army will pay for his daycare. Does anyone know how that works, or have any clients that use this?

I've heard that you have to be MORE than licensed, that you also have to be accredited. BUT that could just be daycares on base. They should be able to get info from the nearest base about it.


They might even be able to use the nephew's military ID, as long as he's with them, to shop in the PX on base.

No experience with this particularly, but your parents should have been given a military point of contact for stuff like this.

Also... Since the child's parents are dual military, they should have filled out a Family Care Plan that details the child's care. Hopefully their unit had them complete one. Your parents should have a copy of the FCP and if it's a good one, it has all relevant info (including daycare).

I wish I knew what they did and didn't do before they left. I could see them having not done anything helpful.

I'll ask my mom if they have any of this stuff.

I started as a provider on a USAF base. My contract paperwork was up to me, but they required I had a full power of attorney, signed by the base judge for every child in my care. This was so that in the case that the parents were deployed, I had the authority to get medical care, hand off to relatives etc. Is that still the same?

Ok, they were not left an FCP. So frustrating, but not shocking.

Is this what you are referring to?

IME, albeit limited, it's part of their deployment paperwork. So if they didn't give a copy to their caregivers they should be able to obtain one. They should contact their last base and ask for help with the issue. There is usually an office that handles dependent issues.

So, it looks like they need to figure out if there is base childcare near them first, then they can pick from the 4 providers closest to them that I found.

It's crazy to me that a dual military couple could deploy without giving their child's guardian every last potentially important scrap of info for a child so young

If you knew my brother you wouldn't be surprised. They weren't supposes to be deployed together. They didn't want to be apart for 2 years. They have 3 kids!
