Child Development Homes

The CDH is a setting in which CDH providers care for children in their own homes, on or off base. This type of arrangement offers a home-like, natural environment and more flexibility in the hours of operation to accommodate your work schedule. Some CDH providers even provide care for watchstanders, weekend duty, overnight care, shift-work hours, etc. One of the best childcare benefits available to military families is a successful CDH program. CDH providers are certified by DoD, applicable state licensing agencies, and are currently accrediting with the National Association for Family Child Care (NAFCC). Training, inspections and criminal background checks are conducted by the Navy. The Navy subsidizes childcare fees for eligible parents of children six weeks through five years. For information about becoming a CDH Provider contact the Regional CDH office.

CDH Subsidy Program
The ages cover six weeks through five years and children with special needs, functioning at a developmental level within this range, are also eligible.

Fees are based on total family income. Ask your CDH provider how to register for the CDH subsidy.
