Child Development Center (CDC)
The CDC provides full-day, part-day and hourly care for children ages 6 weeks to 5 years old.
Child Development Home
The Child Development Home (CDH) Program provides a choice for families for the care and education of their children. CDH Providers may provide care during nights and weekends.
Our certified CDH Providers offer developmentally appropriate programs that promote the overall social, emotional, cognitive, and physical growth and development of the children in the homes while building school readiness skills.
The CDH Program provides career opportunities to those who want to provide child care services in their homes. CDH Providers receive extensive training, regular home inspections, and ongoing programming support from CYP.
A benefit to CDH Providers is that their job is transferrable between installations, if a CDH Provider’s family moves to a different installation, she may choose to open a CD home at the family’s new installation.
Atsugi CYP is currently accepting applications for CDH Providers. Contact the CDH Monitor for additional information.
