School Age Care (SAC) offers child care (Before and After School Care and Full Day Care) for children and youth from give to 12 years of age, starting with kindergarten. The SAC Annex is located next to the Child Development Center and offered diverse activities from our affiliated organizations, Boys & Girls Clubs of America (BGCA) and 4-H (Hear, Heart, Hands, and Health). SAC promotes the cognitive, social, emotional, cultural, language, and physical development of children through programs and services that recognize differences in children and youth and encourages self-confidence, curiosity, creativity, self-discipline, and resiliency.
SAC Annex is nationally accredited by the Council on Accreditation (COA). This national recognition shows our commitment to quality and continuous program improvement.
SAC offers transportation for before and after school to the MJUSC’s Elementary Schools on base Muroc Joint Unified School District.
SAC provides USDA approved breakfast, lunch, and afternoon snack each day during Summer Camp, Winter Break Spring Break, and any other days that school is not in session. During school days, a USDA approved breakfast and afternoon snack is offered each day.
To request care, please visit the militarychildcare.com website. You will need to create a Family Profile and submit a request for care.
Once care is offered through the MilitaryChildCare website, the sponsor will have 24 hours to accept the position on the website. Notifications are sent to the email within the Family Profile. After care is offered, our administrative staff will send you a link to create a profile in the Child and Youth Program Billing Management System (CYPBMS) with instructions on requirements before starting care. If the offer of care expires on the MilitaryChildCare website, the space will be offered to the next family on the wait list and you may be required to re-submit a request for care.
Placement is administered by the MilitaryChildCare website, and is based upon the eligibility requirements defined in the above link. Installations must follow priorities in accordance with the DoDI 6060.02. Individual priority verification is determined at the time of placement. For unborn children, waiting list documents may be completed during pregnancy. PCS inbound can be placed on the waiting list as soon as they have published orders.
If your child has any special needs, such as asthma, allergies, physical disabilities, etc., please note the need(s) in the request for care on the MilitaryChildCare website. If special needs are required, our team must follow a mandated process to ensure we will be able to provide appropriate care for your child before starting care.
