Child Development Centers (CDC)



At the CDCs, children have a full day in an enriching environment that builds the foundation for their transition into school.

  • Serves children ages 6 weeks to 5 years
  • Offers full-day, hourly care, and a part-day enrichment program for 3-5 year olds
  • Offers developmentally appropriate curriculum, furnishings, playgrounds and manipulatives
  • Requires that staff complete national agency checks and all required DoD annual training
  • Participates in the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) food program
  • Is nationally accredited through the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC)
