NAVSTA Great Lakes - Child Development Homes

Child Development Home (CDH) offers care for small groups of children in a home like setting.

The Child Development Home Program (CDH) is a quality in-home alternative to center-based care. The CDH providers offer care for small groups of children 6 weeks to 12 years old in a warm nurturing environment where children participate in developmentally appropriate learning activities. Providers offer flexible schedules including extended hours, overnight, and weekend care as well as care for children with special needs. The CDH providers are regulated by the Navy Child and Youth Programs (CYP), which perform background checks, training, unannounced inspections and ongoing support to providers. Please enroll your child on the website listed below or if you have questions please contact the Child Development Home Office at 847-688-3100.

For Fulltime Child Care please log onto militarychildcare.com and select the facilities and/or homes you are interested in your child attending when a space becomes available. For further information or questions regarding childcare; please contact the specific facility at the phone numbers listed above.
