Our Mission - To assist Department of Defense (DoD) military and civilian personnel in balancing the competing demands of the accomplishment of the DoD mission and family life by managing and delivering a system of quality, available and affordable programs and services for eligible children and youth, birth through 18 years of age.
The CDC provides care for children ages 6 weeks to 5 years. The center provides a safe, nurturing environment that promotes the social, cognitive, language, and physical development of young children. Their goal is to support each child's needs and abilities and challenge them to reach their individual potential. They are accredited by the National Association for the Education of Young Children and follow the standards set by the Air Force Services Agency. Children of active duty military personnel, DoD civilian personnel, reservists on active duty, and DoD contractors are eligible. Priority is given to families who are either single parents or whose spouse is employed full-time or a full-time student. Fees are based on total family income. Let the CDC staff enhance the educational development of your child in a developmentally-appropriate atmosphere.
