Child Care

Child Development Center (CDC)

The Mayport CDC program is based on the The National Association for the Education of Young Children's guidelines on Developmentally Appropriate Practice in Early Childhood Programs and is accredited by the National Academy of Early Childhood Programs. We strive to meet the needs of and promote the physical, social, emotional and cognitive development of the children, while responding to the needs of the family.

Programs Offered 

The CDC offers full-time, drop-in and a Voluntary Pre-Kindergarten program. In addition, Family Child Care and School-Age Care (SAC) programs are offered for children, kindergarten to 12 years of age before and/or after school, during holidays, and summer vacations. 


The status of the sponsor determines eligibility of children to enroll in Navy Child Development Programs. Eligibility is based on the parent who has physical custody of the child. Eligible patrons include military personnel, DoD civilian personnel, reservists on active duty or inactive duty for training and retired members.
