This program offers child care for military families in crisis. No charges are made to the family. Qualifying situations include medical emergencies, hospitalization or surgery of service member or spouse, incapacitation of family member, early birth of a second or subsequent child if spouse is not in the area, recuperation from illness, or law enforcement involvement with a family due to a domestic issue. The service is designed to keep military children out of the foster care system until extended family can assume care for children or until the crisis resolves, but not more than 2-3 days. The service is not intended to usurp a service member’s Family Care Plan, but rather augment it when stated plans have fallen apart and a couple of days of emergency child care is needed to re-group in order to avoid foster care placement. Services are generally coordinated with Child Protective Services, Naval Medical Center personnel, or unit commanders on behalf of families in need.

The published fees are used by all programs in the DoD child development system of care. Families using military child development programs pay a portion of the total cost of care, with the remaining amount subsidized with appropriated funds, within federal guidelines, and supplemented, as necessary, with non-appropriated fund revenue from sales from the Exchange and other services offered through Marine Corps Community Services (MCCS). Fees for retired military personnel, DoD contractors, and non-DoD federal employees are not subsidized with appropriated funds, meaning that families in those categories pay the full cost of care.

The Camp Lejeune Children and Youth Programs Branch offer affordable options to meet the needs of our military families. After registering, you have access to the following programs:
Staff plans activities:
The Youth Pavilions (offering school age care) promote a safe place for children. Programs are designed to provide leisure activities for school age children in kindergarten to 12 years of age. Crafts, games, food experiences, homework assistance, and field trips are regular activities your child will encounter. All programming is developed with consideration of the desires of the participants and with respect to the cultural diversity and the familial values of each member. We are a 4-H Club.
Patterned after the successful Conscious Discipline model, the Youth Pavilions utilize an emotional intelligence program consisting of strategies for responding rather than reacting to life events. Through responding, conflict moments are transformed into cooperative learning opportunities. This research-based program will increase academic achievement, decrease problem behaviors, and improve the quality of relationships with students, teachers, parents, and coworkers.
School Age Care Options for 2020-2021 School YearIn response to the child care needs of service members with school age children who need child care on the days when not in school, Tarawa Terrace Youth Pavilion will offer a School Out/Seasonal Camp designed to support children attending Onslow County Schools. Families can request the Mon-Wed option (for children attending in-person school on Thurs and Fri) or the Wed-Fri option (for children attending in-person school on Mon and Tues). This program offers recreational child care for children ages 5-10 and is not intended to serve as a substitute for instruction (11-12 year old children with special needs may be served as well). The facility lacks wireless internet, and online learning activities may need to be completed at home in the evenings. Children from other schools/districts (other than Onslow County) may request care, but the cohort schedule and teacher workday calendar matches the Onslow County School calendar only. This program currently runs through December. Decisions regarding services for 2021 are pending and subject to change. Spaces are limited.
Before and after school care for children attending Camp Lejeune Community Schools is being offered at New River Child Development Center and Stone Street Youth Pavilion. Additional care may be offered at Heroes Manor I CDC and Tarawa Terrace I CDC in an effort to serve more families. Before/after school care for children attending Camp Lejeune Community Schools may be requested on militarychildcare.com. Please select either New River CDC (if attending Delalio Elementary) or Stone Street Youth Pavilion (if attending any other CLCS).
Single active duty and dual active duty service members receive priority placement per Department of Defense priority placement criteria, though other eligible family types (such as active duty with a civilian working spouse) may also request care and will be offered a spot if available. Fees are based on total family income for each program.
Current hours of operation are 6:45AM - 4:15PM. Hours of operation may expand based on staffing capabilities. Care for mildly ill children is not offered, and children who are subject to quarantine (due to being a close contact of a confirmed COVID-19 case) are not able to attend during periods of quarantine. Fees are pro-rated for periods of exclusion for quarantine. On teacher workdays, care will be offered the full day.
