Child Development Homes - NS Mayport
The Child Development Home (CDH) Program is an extension of the Child Development Center (CDC) Program. CDHs are independent business enterprises operated by Navy certified military family members in their own homes.
The CDH program allows young children to receive the same early start in learning just as the CDC provides, but in a home-like environment while providing continued support to parents and military readiness. Providers may live either on or off base and may care for up to six children. To become a CDH provider, you must submit to a medical screening, complete an application packet, provide three references, and undergo extensive background checks, which are provided to you by the CDH installation director.
This service is offered to active duty, DoD civilian, reservists on active duty or inactive duty for training, and contractors associated with the base. Our program offers full-time and hourly care for children ages six weeks to five years old. Registration for full-time care can be made at militarychildcare.com.
