Child Development Homes
CHILD DEVELOPMENT HOME PROGRAM (CDH)
Only certified homes are sanctioned by the Commanding Officer to provide child care. CDH care is provided by a military family member in base housing. CDH providers attend 30 hours of training and have their homes inspected for safety, sanitation, and quality programming. A Child Development Home offers home-like environment. Developmental programming includes The Creative Curriculum for Family Child Care, which is based on individual child observations, allowing for flexibility to meet the developmental needs of each child.
Children placed in CDH full time care through the CEWL are eligible to receive discounted child care rates based on their household income. Because there are limited overhead costs, we are able to pass the savings onto parents by offering CDH subsidized rates at 20% below the rates at the CDC and SAC programs.
In addition to regular fulltime care, CDH providers can often meet the special needs of later hours, part time, hourly, weekend or last minute care. For these types of care, parents may obtain a child care referral directly from the CDH Office located on the third floor of the Community Readiness Center.
