CHILD YOUTH PROGRAMS
When you’re confident that your child is safe and in good care, everything just seems easier. That’s our mission – to make sure you can rest easy knowing your kids are not only well cared for, but also enjoying themselves. Our Child Development Centers (CDC) are open to children ages 6 weeks until starting kindergarten. Our classrooms provide fun, inclusive and engaging environments, individualized learning experiences that meet the needs of each child, and great opportunities for socialization! Whether you need full-time care or hourly care – we’ve got an option for you.
For full-time child care please log onto www.militarychildcare.com
CURRICULUM AND ASSESSMENT
All CDCs use The Creative Curriculum® as the primary classroom curriculum and Teaching Strategies GOLD® for ongoing child assessment. This is how we ensure classroom quality, promote an age and developmentally appropriate learning environment, facilitate relationship building between staff and families, support the professional development of teachers, and provide a way to measure a child’s progress.
ACCREDITATION & CERTIFICATION
CDCs are required to be nationally accredited through the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC), and must pass an annual DoD inspection.

CHILD DEVELOPMENT HOMES UNAUTHORIZED CARE
As a reminder, per OPNAVINST 1700.9E, any individual caring for other families' children for a total of ten or more hours per week on a regular basis, paid or unpaid, must be a certified CDH provider. One child for one hour equals one child care hour. Providing child care in government quarters is a privilege extended only to Navy CDH Certified Providers. Repeat unauthorized care may result in loss of housing privileges.
