School Age Care
Aviano School Age Care provides before and after school care for children who are currently enrolled in school, ages 5-12 years old. The program offers a wide range of growth and developmental activities for the children. School Age also provides full day care during summer vacation, school holidays, in-services, and breaks. You must be enrolled in the program to participate.
Priority Basis for Enrollment
The new priority framework is as follows:
Priority 1A – Child Development Program Staff
Priority 1B – Single/Dual Military Members and Military Members with a Full-Time Working Spouse
Priority 1C – Military Members with a Part-Time Working Spouse or those with a Spouse Seeking Employment
Priority 1D – Military Members with a Spouse Enrolled Full-Time in a Post-Secondary Institution
Priority 2 – Single/Dual Department of Defense Civilians with a Full-Time Working Spouse
Priority 3 – Space Available
In February 2020, the Office of the Secretary of Defense issued a memo to update the priority system and clarify when military families will receive priority access to child care, including supplanting lower priority families with children in care.
Acceptance of Care
Once an offer for care has been accepted, families must:
Send in the Sponsor’s LES and Spouses Pay Stub (if applicable based on priority)
Submit up-to-date immunization records (printed by 31st MDG) with most recent FLU SHOT
Complete the School-Age Care Family Agreement
Attend a mandatory New Family Orientation to be scheduled by Aviano School-Age Care
Offers for care will be made through the Military Child Care (MCC) website. Families have 72 hours to accept, decline, or defer the offer for care.
Cancelation of Care requires a minimum of two-week notice.
Programs & Services
School Age Care participates in both official ‘4-H’ and ‘Boys and Girls Clubs of America’ programs. This includes field trips, homework assistance, arts & crafts, science, cooking, music, cultural activities, community experiences and learning opportunities in safe environments. Youth are supervised by trained program assistants. This program is accredited through the Council of Accreditation (COA).
Hourly Drop-in Care
Available for families at a rate of $7 per hour, per child. Families may register for hourly care through their CYPBMS parent portal account.
Children participating in hourly care are not able to attend field trips or pool days.
Parents’ Night/Day Out
Offered each month to all Aviano Families. The cost is $28 for the first child registered and $23 for each additional child registered. This discount is applied to the old child – meaning families still qualify if one child is registered at CDC and the other is at the AYP. Families are able to register for Parents’ Day/Night Out through their CYPBMS parent portal account.
Give Parents a Break
Families are often separated from spouses as well as from extended family members who might otherwise offer support. In an effort to help these families, the AFAS, in cooperation with Air Force child care community, has agreed to provide funding for child care for Active Duty Air Force families under a program called “Give Parent a Break” (GPAB).
The purpose of this program is to offer eligible active duty Air Force parents a break from the stresses of parenting. Families may use this time to suit their personal needs.
Eligibility - Active Duty Air Force Families where a parent is feeling stress due to unique circumstances such as:
•Whose spouse is deployed, on extended TDY or a remote tour of duty
•Member has been experiencing a family crisis such as birth of a baby, serious illness of a family member, death in the family, extended illness of a family member
•Member has been required to work extensive extended shifts
•Having a child with special needs
In order to utilize this program, families may receive a referral from the Airman & Family Readiness Center, their squadron commander/first sergeant, a chaplain, or Family Advocacy personnel. All required forms must be completed and submitted and a reservation made with the School Age Program by noon on the Wednesday prior to the GPAB date.
Power Hour: Making Minutes Count
Power Hour provides youth with strategies, activities, resources, and information to create an engaging homework help experience. This tutoring program encourages members to become self-directed learners. Youth earn points for every minute they attend Power Hour and then they are allowed to use their points to buy items from our Power Hour store once a quarter.
