Welcome to the Navy Child and Youth Programs (CYP)! Choosing child care and youth programming for your family is an important decision, which may be further complicated by military lifestyles. We know that military life comes with unique experiences and rewards of its own. While your children may face more than the usual challenges growing up, they also have the benefit of receiving high-quality early care and education from qualified professionals who can assist them in learning and in coping with these challenges. Navy CYP provides quality programs and services to nurture and support children as they navigate life in a military family, including care for your children during nontraditional work hours. The Navy is also dedicated to supporting the inclusion of children of all races, ethnicities, and abilities in CY programs. Navy policies, practices, and procedures reflect a commitment to inclusion and support of all children with and without disabilities or other special needs.
