Child Development Homes (CDH)

The Child Development Homes (CDH) program is an extension of the Child Development Center (CDC). These homes are independent business enterprises operated by Navy certified military family members in their own homes.

The CDH program allows young children, 6 weeks to twelve years of age, to receive the same early start in learning as the CDC, but in a home-like environment while providing continued support to parents and military readiness. Providers may live either on or off base and may care for up to six children (including their own) under the age of eight. Providers must maintain current CPR and First Aid certification, current liability insurance and pass monthly inspections by the CDH Program Director/Monitor. They also prepare meals in accordance with the USDA Food Program guidelines, and receive continuous monthly trainings on age appropriate activities for young children and professional ethics.

A subsidy program is available to provide weekly rates that are similar to those of the. The CDH program offers full day, hourly, drop-in, before and after school, special needs, weekend and night care.
