General Information

Program:
The Mission of Air Force Child and Youth Programs(CYP) is to assist DoD military and civilian personnel in balancing the competing demands of the accomplishment of the DoD mission and family life through delivery of a system of quality, available and affordable programs and services for eligible children and youth birth through 18 years of age. 

Inspections and Accreditation:
The Schriever AFB Child Development is certified through the Department of Defense Child Development Services. The programs certification is renewed annually after the unannounced DOD Inspection has been completed. In addition, the CDC is accredited by The National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC). Childcare programs earn their accreditation and certifications by providing high quality childcare which provides a safe environment as well as a curriculum that is supportive of the children’s individual needs.

Enrollment Information:
The CDC provides care for children ages 6 weeks to 5 years of age. To get your child on the waiting list please visit www.militarychildcare.com, if you have questions regarding enrollment please contact the CDC at 567-4742.

Weekly Fees:
Weekly fees are based upon the family’s total family income.

Curriculum:
The Child Development Center offers a curriculum that is supportive to the individual needs and interests of the children. Children will have the opportunity to learn through hands on experiences, active thinking, exploration, and experimenting along with support and positive interactions from the staff. Our classroom environments are carefully planned to allow children to learn through play, socializing, and experimenting with a variety of materials and toys. The outdoor environment provides children with new opportunities to explore, develop gross motor skills, coordination, and strengthen their muscles.

Guidance:
Discipline in the CDC is consistent and constructive in nature. It is based off of mutual respect of the children and staff. Staff will establish clear and reasonable boundaries for the children which are developmentally appropriate for the child’s age group. Within the Child Development Center, no form of punishment will be practiced by any staff member, volunteer, visitor, or parent.

Food Program:
The Child Development Center provides meals and snacks throughout the day. The guidelines established by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) are followed to ensure the meals and snacks meet nutritional value requirements. All meals are served family style and parents are always welcome to join their child during any meal. A cycle menu is followed to allow a variety in foods served. The weekly menu is always posted in the lobby.

Children with Special Needs:
The Child Development Center makes every effort to provide care for children with special needs, when approved by the Medical Advisor prior to enrollment. Please see the front desk for information.
