Schofield Barracks Child Development Center - Schofield Barracks
The Child Development Centers of the USAG-HI are places of learning and nurturing for all of our children from birth to preschool. Utilizing the creative curriculum, 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.
The Child Development Center delivery system offers full-day, part-day, and hourly care in five facilities located at Fort Shafter, Schofield Barracks, Helemano Military Reservation and in the Aliamanu Military Reservation housing area.
Full-day programs offer services to children ages 6 weeks to 5 years old, whose parents require child care on a regularly scheduled, daily basis (five to 12 hours per day). While at the center, children are served breakfast, lunch, and afternoon snacks.
Part-day programs are offered in three of the five facilities. Program options are two-day, three-day, or five-day per week developmental programs with morning and afternoon sessions. The part-day program is offered for toddlers 18 to 36 months of age, and for pre-school children 3 to 5 years old.
Hourly care programs are offered in three facilities for children 6 weeks to 12 years of age to meet the needs of parents who require child care on a drop-in basis (1 to 20 hours per week). Reservations for hourly child care may be made on the same day or up to two weeks in advance.
