The Child Development Center (CDC) provides center-based care for children 6 weeks to 5 years of age. The CDC provides care to children of active duty military and DoD/NAF civilian personnel families. We are committed to providing the best developmental experiences for all children. The curriculum is designed to meet the cognitive, social, emotional, and physical needs of children by using Developmentally age-appropriate activities.
The practices of Air Force Child Development Programs are based on current knowledge of child development and early childhood education. CDC programs are responsible for supporting the development of the whole child, meaning all areas of development are considered inter-related and equally important. The program acknowledges that children learn through active, hands-on involvement with their environment, peers, and caring adults. We respect each child’s unique interest, experiences, abilities, and needs, thus allowing us to be responsive to and appropriate for each child. Children are valued as individuals, as well as part of a group. Likewise, the program respects and supports the ideals, cultures, and values of families in their task of nurturing children. We advocate for children, families, and the early childhood professionals within our programs.
Family members, ages 6 weeks to 5 years, of active duty military and DoD/NAF civilians are eligible to use the CDC. The present center has an enrollment capacity of 244. To enroll parents must:
