Programs Offered 

Child Care programs offered at the Child Development Center (CDC) include: hourly care, full day care and a 2-day and 4-day preschool. The Preschool Program runs September thru May. The preschool program is Accredited by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) and DoD Certified. Infant care is provided for babies 6 weeks of age and above.


The age of the child has no bearing on the cost of care. The range of rates is due to the sliding scale of parent fees as required by the Department of Defense (DOD). Fees are based on the combined total family income and are derived from the adjusted gross income on the most recent Leave and Earnings Statement (LES).

Full day fees range from $196-$490 per month. Fees for hourly care are $3.50 per hour per child.

Family Child Care (FCC)

Family Child Care (FCC) is one of the childcare options at Dugway Proving Ground. FCC is a professional quarter-based system that provides care for children 4 weeks to 12 years of age. The program provides care in a warm home-like setting that meets childcare needs and allows sibling to be together. The FCC system is part of Child and Youth Services and the quality of programming is comparable to the Child Development Center.

In addition to offering a range of full-day, part-day and hourly care, FCC offers flexibility. These services include extended hour and weekend care to accommodate work hours of the population. This may be especially vital to patrons with non-traditional schedules.
