Central Enrollment Registration
Central Enrollment Registration is the focal point for initial registration of youth in the McGuire and Dix Child Development Centers, Youth Centers, School Age Programs and Youth Sports Programs. CER is responsible for ensuring all parent information is accurate, parents are placed in the correct fee category, and all mandated requirements are met (e.g., youths’ immunizations are current). To initially register your youth in any of our programs, please make an appointment with CER.
JB MDL has youth facilities at all three locations. Lakehurst has a vibrant School Age Program which operates year round. The McGuire facility incorporates both Youth Center and School Age Program operations as well as the Joint Base Youth Sports Program. Dix youth programs are provided through their Youth Center, Teen Center and School Age Program facilities. Each School Age Program is nationally accredited through the Council on Accreditation. Additionally, each of our centers is affiliated with the Boys and Girls Clubs of America and 4-H which provide a wide variety of activities for youth to become involved in. Instructional courses are offered in ballet and karate, with other courses depending on instructor availability. A comprehensive youth sports program offers soccer, basketball, baseball, T-ball, girls’ softball, junior golf and other seasonal sports. Trips are also scheduled to various areas.
