Army Child and Youth Services (CYS) programs support military readiness by reducing the conflict between Soldiers’ parental responsibilities and mission requirements.” Simply stated, CYS programs provide quality child care, youth out of school options, and school support services so that Soldiers and Department of Defense (DoD) Civilians can focus on their job, knowing their children are well cared for by professional staff in state of the art facilities. Taking care of our Soldiers and their Families with consistent, effective and safe programs builds and enhances not only military readiness and retention, but also Family resilience.


Our center has been accredited through the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) since April 1998. Accreditation is a nationally recognized credential for a developmental appropriate early childhood program. This credential recognizes programs that provide high quality care and education for young children. The purpose of becoming accredited is to continue to learn and improve the quality of our programs for young children. Our ratios are as follows: Infants 1:4, Pre-toddlers 1:5, Toddlers 1:7, Preschool 1:10.

Training and Curriculum

The Training and Curriculum Specialists (TACS) ensure the curriculum provided in our programs is age appropriate and provides developmental learning activities. The TACSs also plan, track, and provide training for employees and parents. Each center has 1-2 TACS depending on the size of the facility. They monitor the execution of the program requirements, ensure staff training, assess environmental and program quality, role model developmentally appropriate practices, and work cohesively with the specified Program Director. We are currently using Creative Curriculum in our classrooms. To learn more, please visit the Creative Curriculum web site for additional information.
