Child & Youth Services

Child & Youth Services (CYS) recognizes the challenges of our Soldiers and their Families. By offering quality programs for children, youth and students, CYS supports the Army Family by reducing the conflict between mission readiness and parental responsibility.  Whenever you need it and wherever you are, CYS is prepared to make life better for Army Families. 

Programs include daycare programs at your garrison and in your local community, school-age services and online tutoring programs. CYS also has teen programs, in-home childcare, youth sports and more. 

Parent Central Services

For your child to participate in any CYS program on Fort Campbell, he/she must be registered. Appointments are available and recommended.

In addition to Child Development Center fees, our current Fee Policy covers all Child & Youth Services Programs, including: Full Day, Part Day, Part Time, School Age, Hourly Care, Family Child Care Homes, Skies Unlimited Instructional Programs, Youth Services, and Youth Sports. The policy components covered by the current fee policy are:

  • Child Development Center (CDC) Families may select a 2 or 4 week Leave/Vacation Fee Plan for each child enrolled in regularly scheduled child care programs. Selection will ONLY occur during the Family’s initial registration or re-registration for the upcoming 12 months. Once a Leave/Vacation Fee Plan is selected, it remains in effect for the entire registration year (12 months).
  • Patrons provide their Total Family Income (TFI) information as part of their annual registration/re-registration process. The current TFI categories have been adjusted from last year to reflect a weighted average of the proposed military and civilian pay increases.  The attached standard fee structure further clarifies the changes. Local Child & Youth Programs will provide additional information and assistance. 
  • Families with more than one child in full-day programs will receive a multiple child reduction discount, regardless of total family income.  Deployment fee reductions are in effect, while military parents are deployed.
  • Our Parent Participation program allows parents to earn a fee reduction for volunteering a minimum of 10 hours (10 points) to receive 10% reduction on one month’s fee for one child, generally in their own child’s program or on behalf of the entire CYS program. If a parent has earned 20 points, then the 10% fee reduction may be applied for one child over a 2 month period or applied for two separate children during the same month.

The Garrison Commander may authorize additional fee reductions for Families with temporary, documented financial hardships.
