Parent Central Services
Child & Youth Services (CYS) recognizes the challenges of Soldiers and their Families. Offering quality programs for children, youth and students, CYS supports the Army Family by reducing the conflict between mission readiness and parental responsibility. It supports Soldier readiness and makes life better for Army Families. Programs include but are not limited to daycare, school-age services, online tutoring, teen programs, in-home childcare, and youth sports. For details, visit the Child & Youth Services section on the Fort Carson MWR website or call 719.526.1101.
Fort Carson also offers Family Child Care (FCC) homes, on post. FCC providers offer age-appropriate activities in an environment that is nurturing and homelike. The small group size allows the children to develop close relationships to their caregiver and the other children in the group. FCC providers are also able to accommodate a variety of work schedules. Providers in home-based care follow the same guidelines and training schedule as the CYS center-based programs. For details, call 719.526.1101.
Fort Carson's child care programs consist of full-day and hourly childcare for children six weeks to 5 years old. They provide a creative environment for your child with physical growth and educational activities as part of the program. The seven Child Development Centers (CDC's) are DoD certified and accredited by the National Association for the Education of Young Children. Depending on the time of year, there may be a waiting list. For details or registration, call 719-526-1101.
Fort Carson offers Before and After School care for youth in grades K-5. Transportation is provided to and from on-post schools. Full day care is available for school out days. Camps are offered for winter, spring and summer according to the District 8 school calendar. Several clubs are offered during regular programming, including a homework and computer lab, photography, 4-H and Boys and Girls Clubs of America (BGCA) programs.
Special Needs Accommodation Process (SNAP)
Children who have special needs are required to be staffed through the Special Needs Accommodation Progress (SNAP) before admission to CYS programs and/or activities. The SNAP is a comprehensive group of professionals that assist in determining the least restrictive environment for children or youth who require specialized childcare or activities. It identifies the most appropriate child care program or activity placement for children with health issues, developmental delays, physical, social, emotional, learning or behavioral concerns. As a parent, you are a vital member of this team. For details on SNAP, call the Army Community Service (ACS) Exceptional Family Member Program (EFMP) at 719.526.0400.
