Child Development Center

Rest assured that your child is in caring hands at the MWR Kings Bay Child Development Center (CDC). The CDC is a National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) accredited program, offering full-time and hourly/drop-in care for children ages six weeks to five years.  Additionally, the CDC offers three Georgia Bright from the Start Pre-K programs.

The CDC develops and implements programs to meet each child’s social, emotional, physical, and intellectual needs, instilling in them a feeling of competence and positive self-concept. Kids will love playing on the age-appropriate playgrounds, especially the natural and accessible play spaces. Inside, classrooms ensure a safe and fun environment, supported by a caring, professional staff. The CDC values and supports staff development through continuing education so they are well equipped to support the individual needs of children. 

Open to active-duty, DoD civilian, Reservist on active duty or inactive duty for training, and contractors associated with the base.  There are also special programs to assist Wounded Warriors, Fallen Warriors' family members, and Individual Augmentees.
