AVIANO AIR BASE, Italy -- The Department of Defense launches a new website MilitaryChildCare.com to simplify and improve child care requests and is now available for Aviano Air Base on June 30, 2017.

The website provides an online gateway for families to access military operated or military subsidized child care worldwide. The site enables families to create a household profile, conduct child care searches, submit requests for care, and manage requests.

Families at Aviano Air Base who are currently on waitlists are automatically transitioned to the new web-based system. These families will retain the original request date for care and all program enrollment processes will remain the same.

The new site, which is being introduced worldwide in phases, offers a streamlined approach to finding and requesting care, expedite placement through a standardized request process and waitlist management tools, and provides reports that help programs better plan for future placement needs.

Through the website, 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 12 years old. Families may remain on a preferred programs waitlist after being offered care or enrolling in another program.
