Child Development Services (CDS)


The Parent Central Services handles registration for all Child Development services. If eligible for care, you may call ahead and request to be placed on the waiting list as soon as you are notified of your assignment to West Point.

Child Development Center (CDC)

  • Full Day Care -- The full-day program includes center-based services that meet the needs of working parents requiring child care services five to eleven hours per day for children ages 6 weeks to 5 years of age on a regularly scheduled basis. Fees are based on total family income.
  • Hourly Care -- The intermittent hourly care program includes center-based developmental child care that meets the needs of parents requiring short term child care on an intermittent basis. The combined usage of part-day preschool and hourly care may not exceed 24 hours per week. Fees for hourly care are $4 per hour per child. Hourly care is available Monday - Friday, 8:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m.
  • Part Day Preschool -- Includes center-based developmental child care that meets the needs of parents requiring care for children three to five years old on a regularly scheduled part-day, seasonal basis. The combined usage of part-day preschool and hourly care may not exceed 24 hours per week. The program is offered in 2 sessions; 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m., Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays and 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m., Tuesdays and Thursdays.

Family Child Care (FCC)

The FCC program includes child care for those children best served within a small group or home setting. FCC homes offer a full range of hourly, full-day and part-day care. These homes are of particular value to sponsors whose hours exceed those of center-based programs. FCC providers are private contractors certified and monitored by CDS.

Because FCC providers are private contractors, they may develop some of their own policies/procedures which should be contained in a written contract. Provider referrals are made through the Parent Central located in building 140, Lee CDC. You may reach us at 845-938-4458 /0939.

School Age Center (SAC)

The SAC program is designed to meet the specialized needs of children between grades first through fifth grade who are enrolled in school on a full-time basis. SAC is an enrichment and recreation program designed to supplement, not duplicate, school experiences. This program operates before and after school and on a full-time basis during school vacations. School age children who attend schools other than the West Point Elementary need to make their own arrangements for transportation to the program and full time care during vacations that may not be the same as those of the West Point Elementary school.

The computer lab and access to the Internet is available after participating in an orientation. Field trips, guest speakers and Family, Morale, Welfare and Recreation (FMWR) partnerships (i.e. bowling, swimming, outdoor recreation) are all incorporated into the SAC program to deliver programming in the areas of leisure and recreation, sports and fitness and mentoring and support services.

Contact the SAC Program at 845-938-8530 for further information.
