Child Development Centers

To continue taking care of our Soldiers and their families, the following information is being shared as an update from the AF Child and Youth Programs on operational guidelines and considerations amidst the COVID-19 situation. 

  • If parents keep their children at home to fully achieve proper social distancing, or if parents are unable to use child care due to circumstances related to COVID-19, children will NOT lose their child care space and they will NOT be charged fees.
  • Child care credit (no cash transactions) will be applied for the billing cycle starting on 15 March for anyone who meets the above criteria. Any member impacted prior to this date should call their respective program.
    • CDC – (757) 878-4000
    • SAC – (757) 878-5339


The safety and welfare of our military families remains a top priority and we will continue to exercise daily COVID-19 screening protocols and enhanced sanitization measures in all of our child and youth programs.
