If you’re currently on a waitlist or not stationed on a military installation, you could be eligible for our fee assistance program, Military Child Care in Your Neighborhood (MCCYN), through the Navy Fee Assistance Program. We’ll help you locate, select, and pay for civilian child care. If you’re U.S. Navy Active Duty, Reserve on Active Orders, or U.S. Navy Civilian family members – we can help.

MCCYN is for eligible families that need full-time/year-round child care. We can provide military fee assistance to eligible programs and providers by equalizing the cost of commercial child care and military child care fees. The Navy Fee Assistance Program will determine fee assistance amounts for families that are eligible based on the current Navy fee policy and pay fee assistance amounts directly to the prospective child care provider.
