Priority Care

Aviano Air Base has established priorities for child care based on DoD requirements.

  • Priority 1: Child Development Center (CDC) and School Age Program (SAP) employees, Single & Dual Military Families (military married to military) and Reservists on active duty (with a family status Single Parent/Dual Military)
  • Priority 2: Single and Dual Military or Command Sponsored DoD Civilians with a full-time non-military working spouse (working 20 hours per week or is a full-time student)
  • Priority 3: Families with an unemployed spouse


Dependent children, 6 weeks old to 12 years of age, of active duty personnel, DoD civilian personnel, reservists on active duty or during inactive duty training, DoD contractors and Coast Guard personnel assigned to or living on the installation, are eligible to use the Child and Youth Program services.

Child Care for PCS Program

The Air Force Aid Society program offers Air Force families up to 20 hours of free child care per child on a space available basis within 60 days of arrival or departure to/from the base.
Early Reservations: Are highly recommended because slots fill up quickly. Reservations may be made up to 4 weeks in advance by the parent or sponsor of incoming personnel.
Voucher Required: To receive the care for free, a PCS child care voucher must be obtained from the Airman and Family Readiness Center and be provided to youth programs.
