Child Development Center

1030 Langley Ave.

The Child Development Center offers care for children of base members and civilians employed at Seymour Johnson. Programs include hourly and weekly care for children 6 weeks to 5 years old, with fees set by DOD based on total family income. The center also participates in the Give Parents a Break Program by offering free child care every month to parents who qualify.

The center is one of the few full-day child care centers in the local area that is accredited by the National Association for the Education of Young Children.

Family Child Care Office

1200 Wright Brothers Ave.
Building 3102 (A&FRC), Room 121

The Family Child Care Office offers full-time, part-time, hourly, before and after school, shift work and permanent change of station child care, as well as expanded child care. Children of active-duty military personnel or civilians are eligible to enroll in home child care. Child care is provided to base volunteers and those who need respite care.

Military spouses providing in-home care for one or more children 2 weeks to 12 years old for more than 10 hours a week on a regular basis require a license by the mission support group commander. Care provided in unlicensed homes for more than 10 hours a week is illegal.

Parents are encouraged to make Family Child Care their first stop when seeking child care assistance. The FCC coordinator will work one-on-one with parents to find child care for their children.

The Social Recreation aspect of Youth Programs is designed especially for youth between the ages of 9 to 18 (and still in high school). Core programming utilizes Air Force criteria, Boys and Girls Clubs of America (BGCA) and 4-H curriculums. Programs are varied to promote character development, educational and career opportunities, fitness and social recreation, health and life skills, plus the arts and creative expression.

Staff are specially trained with tools and program support to develop, plan, implement, evaluate and improve programs and maximize their ability to serve young people.
