Likewise, through positive relationships, our programs respect and support the ideals, cultures, and values of families in their task of nurturing children and youth. We are advocates for children, families, and the child and youth professionals within our programs and surrounding communities.

There are two child care facilities at Sasebo:
Following is a list of the CDC programs available:
The rates are dependent upon sponsor's paygrade and income and vary from $235-$468 monthly. The rate for hourly care is $3.00/hour.
You may request to have your child(ren)'s names added to the waiting list prior to your arrival. Your sponsor should be able to assist you with the required Request for Care Form.
The following priorities for care shall be utilized when placing children in programs that have a waiting list:
Priorities must be published and available to all patrons. Priority care will be the same for CDC, SAC, and CDH within the installation/region.
CFAS does not have a short term or temporary facility to assist family members during unusual circumstances.
The CYP central enrollment registry consists of two distinct functions: the CWL (Central Waiting List) and the central registry. The CYP central enrollment registry is a registry of all children enrolled or requesting space in the installation or regional CYP. The purpose of the central enrollment registry is to:
The CDH program provides home based childcare services for eligible patrons by Navy certified independent private contractors in their government or non-government owned or leased residence. Care can be on a regular basis, full or part-time.
With in-home childcare, children receive their care in the private home of a certified provider living in government-owned or leased housing or in state-licensed homes in the community. Family child care provides accommodating child care arrangements, including night, weekend, and flexible hourly care for shift work. In-home childcare programs offer comparable care to a CDC. Providers must be certified by the DoD, and some seek additional accreditation from the NAFCC. Regulations limit the number of children that may be cared for at one time: no more than six children under age eight, and no more than two charges under two years old.
CDH are encouraged to obtain accreditation status with the National Association of Family Child Care (NAFCC). Although accreditation for CDH providers is not required, there is a proven benefit to military members utilizing accredited CDH providers.
CDH fees are determined by the provider and the parent. Fees shall be agreed upon in writing prior to children being left for the first time. Parents shall receive a written copy of fees and charges in the parent/provider contract.
