The Child Development Center (CDC) is designed to meet the individual developmental needs of military children by offering quality child care. The CDC provides low adult-to-child ratios that support quality experiences for young children; onsite. The CDC supports parent involvement and works with a team of professionals to ensure the inclusion of all children. All Navy-operated programs use The Creative Curriculum, a standard curriculum model designed to support individualized planning for children while guiding their learning as meaningful and purposeful experiences. This research-based curriculum approach fosters early brain development and school success thus providing continuity for military families adapting to frequent moves between installations. The CDC offers full daycare for children 6 weeks to 5 years old (if not eligible for school). Staff work in partnership with parents to meet each individual child’s needs in a safe, healthy and nurturing environment. Hourly care is available.
