Babysitter Referral Services

Looking for a Teen Babysitter? Looking to be a Teen Babysitter?
CYS offers training following the 4-H babysitter curriculum in becoming a certified Teen Babysitter. Teen military Family members in grades 7 and up who wish to expand and market themselves for babysitting jobs can be placed on the Babysitter Referral List with parent's permission.

Military parents needing babysitters must complete a request form located at Parent Central Services. Once parents complete the required form, they will receive a list of babysitter information based on specified requirements (location, availability, etc). After receiving a list, parents can make arrangements directly with the babysitter. All arrangements and fees for care are between the parent and babysitter.

CYS offers Babysitting Referral Services for registered Families. Babysitters on the referral list are 13 years or older, have certification in First Aid and CPR, and are trained in: 

  • Developmentally appropriate play
  • Recognition of child abuse/neglect
  • Emergency procedures and interviewing

Stop by Parent Central Services for more information.

Alternative Child Care

CYS offers provides additional child care beyond the regular facility opening hours.
 

Kids On Site! (KOS) - Provides on-site child care for your unit/organizational meeting/event in a room adjacent to where the meeting/event is being held. CYS will provide quality child care providers to watch children ages 6 weeks through 12 years on site. Your unit pays for this service through Parent Central Services. KOS is not available at all locations on post. For information, a quote, or to schedule an event, contact Parent & Outreach Services.

 

Volunteer Child Care in a Unit Setting (VCCUS) - CYS  can help units to train volunteers to provide child care for unit functions.


VCCUS is a volunteer-based childcare program that allows for on site care during meetings and events organized by military units, Army Community Service (ACS) groups or Family and Morale, Welfare and Recreation. Through VCCUS, Parent & Outreach Services will provide training to volunteers from the military unit or organization. The program is designed to allow the exchange of cost-free and temporary childcare services during unit sessions when the demand is high or when child development center services are not available. Parents and guardians of children in VCCUS must be attending the same function and must remain at the site while their child is under volunteer care. Units interested in the VCCUS program should contact Parent & Outreach Services for more information.

It is sometimes necessary for Families to be placed on a waiting list for child care if services are not readily available. The waiting period may be different for each program and age group. Please call Parent Central Services for more information.
