Whidbey School-Age Care
As a working parent, having a safe place for your children to go before and after school, provides you with peace of mind to do your job. Our School-Age Care (SAC) programs are designed to do just that. These highly structured recreational and educational programs provide youth with age appropriate before and after school activities as well as holiday and summer day camps for youth ages 5 years (and enrolled in kindergarten) - 12 years.
Whether it is at a school-age care program on base or in one of our community approved facilities, kids will be able to meet new friends, learn new skills and participate in a variety of activities. Fees are based on Total Household Income (THI) and registration is taken directly at each facility.
Child Development Homes (CDH)
Another viable option for school-age care is the Navy Child Development Home (CDH) care program in which certified caregivers provide child care services out of their own home. They provide the same level of high quality care found in our on-base centers, but are often able to offer a little more flexibility in services. Not only are our homes required to meet Navy child care guidelines, many of our homes are also licensed by the State of Washington. CDH providers offer developmental programs and receive training and home visits on a monthly basis. They offer full-time, part-time, drop-in and weekend care.
The Youth Sponsorship Program can connect you with a peer at the new CYP program or school to help create a smooth transition.
