Child Development Center earns prestigious national accreditation

The Academy Child Development Centers were recently granted accreditation by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC). This prestigious recognition has been achieved by only about seven percent of early childhood programs nationwide.

Give Parents a Break Program

Give Parents a Break is a program sponsored by the Air Force Aid Society for families who are under stress and feel they need a break or just a little time to themselves. The Child Development Center will care for the children of referred families every second Friday or Saturday of the month for free. Families can get a referral from their Squadron First Sergeants or can contact the A&FRC, 333-3444. After getting a referral, call the CDC at 333-6779 for a reservation.
