School Age Care

Child Youth Programs
Navy childcare programs are critical for our Service members who need to go to work every day, serving both at home and abroad. During the current COVID-19 crisis we are adapting our Child and Youth Program (CYP) operations to meet both the Navy’s mission and family requirements, while ensuring the children in our care and our professionals are healthy and safe.

Effective March 17 the following “social distancing” changes are being implemented:
• All Programs/Services that are NOT full-time childcare (ages 0-12) cancelled/postponed until further notice/continual monitoring
• All Hourly Childcare cancelled (unless emergency/ mission essential)
• All Youth Sports, Youth/Teen Programs, Field Trips away from Navy Childcare facilities cancelled
• No New childcare enrollees into Navy operated programs (unless emergency/mission essential)
• Parents are required to self-care for own children at home if Navy full-time telework agreement during COVID-19 pandemic is executed, parent fees will be waived/space saved
• Parent fees will be waived/space saved for all personnel who elect to voluntarily temporary withdrawal their child for at least two weeks or until May 1, 2020
• Installations may request waivers to reduce program operating hours
• Supplemental staffing required from other N9 programs for increased cleaning/sanitation
• Background check requirements waived but supplemental staff always in line of sight supervision of “blue smock” CYP employee and not in ratio
• School Liaison Officers Assigned to CDC/SAC to supplement
• All training requirements postponed
• All Teacher in-Service Days cancelled
• Increased handwashing and sanitation practices (e.g. cleaning door handles, hard surfaces, etc.)
• Minimize visitors (e.g. postpone all non-critical facility maintenance, etc.)
• Staff shall complete all sign in/out protocols
• Discontinue Family Style Dining (staff will plate food for children)
• Discontinue Tooth Brushing and Use of Sensory Tables

SCHOOL AGE CARE (SAC): The Yokosuka and Ikego School Age Care (SAC) Centers offer a recreational program for children of working parents, from kindergarten thru 6th grades. Rock climbing, bowling, swimming, off base field trips, arts and crafts and games are part of the fun. A contract and prepayment is required for a standing reservation. Hourly care is available on a space available basis. Weekly fees for full-time care are based on total family income for before and after school care.

All Navy programs are required to issue Child and Youth Programs Fee Policy for FY2017. The policies and guidance are uniform throughout all Naval installations in Japan.

Fees for Child Development Centers (CDC) and School Age Care (SAC)
Fees for Child Development Centers (CDC) and School Age Care (SAC) are in compliance with the FY2017 fee letter and will be adjusted to meet Department of Defense standardized fees.

SOAR is your source to help:
• Identify academic strengths and weaknesses in math and reading.
• Instruct the student in math, reading and language arts through interactive tutorials.
• Involve parents by providing educational resources written specifically for parents.

The Military Impacted Schools Association (MISA) sponsors SOAR in partnership with the University of Northern Iowa, The Princeton Review, and Houghton Mifflin. We have come together to provide resources to assist with the unique challenges for military children. Our hope is that SOAR will help children improve in their academic endeavors, and ease the transition of moving from one military installation to another.

We envision that parents will find many ways to use SOAR throughout the year. Results of tests or activities taken on SOAR are not recommended to be used by school districts for placement, gifted or special needs identification, or credit recovery. SOAR is not designed to predict performance on standardized tests or as a student’s primary source of learning.
