Childcare Subletting App Comes To F. E. Warren AFB!
Parents at F. E. Warren now have an easy way to sublet childcare at the CDC. The Kinderspot app helps Department of Defense families on Air and Space Force bases offer or find weeklong blocks of time for rent at the CDC.
The Kinderspot app allows families with children at a DAF CDC to offer weeklong blocks of time to other families, receiving a credit to their account when another family rents their spot. This allows parents to save money when on leave or TDY.
Families on the CDC waitlist must complete paperwork at their CDC before booking available weeks through the app. Rental fees are paid directly to the CDC at the renter’s rate, based on the family’s total family income.
This app was designed to be a helpful tool for military families. It is useful, intuitive, easy to utilize for CDC parents. Ongoing efforts from developers improve the app’s features and functionality, including push and wait list notifications.
“With today’s technology, everyone utilizes a mobile device for everyday life and family management. Adding the new push and wait list notification options provides installations, managers and families the convenience of subletting their childcare spot with ease,” said Senior Master Sgt. Shawanda Summers, AFSVC Community Services senior enlisted leader.
Details on local implementation of the Kinderspot app are available at the CDC.
Call (307) 773-3221 for more details.
The app is available on both Android and IOS app stores.
