Child Development Centers (CDC)

The Child Development Centers of APG are places of learning and nurturing for children from 6 weeks to 5 years of age. They provide year-around full-day and hourly programs and before- and after-Kindergarten services to meet the needs of Soldiers and their Families.

Our approach balances both teacher-directed and child-initiated learning, with an emphasis on responding to children's learning styles and building on their strengths and interests. We provide opportunities for learning in literacy, math, science, social studies, the arts, technology, and personal hygiene and health. Yet, we never lose sight of the importance of children's social/emotional development. The most important goal of our early childhood curriculum is to help children become enthusiastic learners. This means encouraging children to be active and creative explorers who are not afraid to try out their ideas and to think their own thoughts.

Full Day Care is offered to children 6 weeks to 5 years. Costs are based on total family income (see fees) as directed by the Department of Defense Patron Fee Policy. Each child is assigned to a primary caregiver. Activities are based on observations.

Hourly Care is offered on a limited basis and must be pre-scheduled.
