Child & Youth

Child and Youth Programs (CYP) consist of four basic types of care: Child Development Centers (CDCs), Child Development Homes (CDHs), School-age Care (SAC) and Youth and Teen Programs. CYP staff have received extensive training for childcare and are required to maintain continuing education to ensure the most up to date childcare can be provided.  All child care programs are open to Active Duty Service members, DoD civilians and contractors. Fees are based on total family income and vary for full time care.

  • 24/7 Home: NSA Bethesda 24/7 Center is now open. The 24/7 center serves children between the ages of 6 weeks to 12 years in a Navy Child and Youth Program facility that is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days per year. Care can be provided up to 24 hours. The concept of 24/7 centers is developed to meet the needs of military watch standers, shift workers, and military personnel called for other special duties during non-traditional hours. 

  • Austin's Room: Austin's Room provides hourly child care and is dedicated to the children of Wounded Warriors. Care is provided for children ages 6 weeks to 12 years. Austin's Room is sponsored by the Mario Lemeiux Foundation and is managed by NSA Bethesda Child & Youth Programs.

  • Child Development Center (CDC) I & Child Development Center II: Child Development Centers (CDCs) provide full- and part-day early care and education services for children ages 6 weeks through preschool (or until the child enters kindergarten). 

  • School Liason Officer: Connecting Military Families, Commands and K-12 Schools

  • Youth Center: Youth and Teen Programs offer developmental and recreational programs that provide a safe place to learn and grow while having fun.

HOURLY CARE

Make payments, hourly care reservations and so much more online through CYP Online Services! Hourly care is available on a first-come, first-served basis for children 6 weeks to 12 years old. The cost is $4 per hour. New patrons must complete a registration packet before using the online system. Download a registration packet here or pick one up at your local center.  

GIVE PARENTS A BREAK

Military families are subject to unique stressors associated with military life, such as deployments, remote tours of duty, extended working hours, recent transfer to the area, illness in the family, caring for a child with special needs or other circumstances/hardships. The Give Parents a Break (GPAB) program is designed to give family members a short break from parenting in order to help them deal with these types of stressful situations. This program is free for respite care referrals and $4 per hour for all other patrons. 

Eligible patrons include all children 6 weeks to 5 years of age who are not yet in kindergarten. Give Parents a Break is offered typically two times each month (days depending on the installation) and reservations can be found on installatin's websites and social media pages.
