Hours of Operation
6:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday – Friday
The program observes all federal holidays and will be closed accordingly. Emergency closings due to base closure or inclement weather will be at the discretion of the Installation Commander. Parents may be called if an emergency arises. Please see Hours of Operation below for inclement weather opening times.
Alert Status Care
In order to meet the demands of our military families, the Child Development Program does provide extended care during alert hours, such as for exercises or recalls when notified by the Installation Commander. The extended hours of operation are 5:30 a.m. to 7 p.m. Children will be permitted to stay beyond the ten-hour daily limit. However, the applicable hourly rate for childcare will apply. We request that parents give notification of intended use as soon as possible to ensure adequate staffing.
All children between the ages of 6 weeks and 5 years old whose parents or legal guardians are either active duty military, DoD civilian personnel paid with either APF or NAF, reservists on active duty or during inactive duty training, and DoD contractors are eligible to enroll in the Child Development Program.
