The centers, through the skills of caregivers using the highest quality child care, focus on development of the “whole child.” They provide many hands-on activities with an emphasis on child-initiated play experiences. The centers participate in the USDA food program and provide nutritious meals and snacks for the children. Infants are provided formula (specific brands only) and baby food through the food program. Reservations may be made at the centers for hourly and daily care on a space-available basis. Children with special needs are mainstreamed case-by-case into the child development programs, based on individual education plans. 

A Part-Day Preschool Program is available for children 3 to 5 years old. For more information, call central registration, 907-384-7483, in Building 600, the Welcome Center JBER-Richardson.
