The CDH program provides child care in a warm, family setting in which children can participate in developmentally appropriate learning activities and home-life experiences. The children are able to build a trusting relationship with a provider who will foster their curiosity and creativity, provide guidance and give them the hugs they need.
Providers attend 20 hours of orientation classes including CPR and First Aid and national background checks are performed on all CDH providers. CDH homes are inspected by the Naval Academy fire department, safety office and preventive medicine department. The CDH program offers providers the opportunity to work in their home and watch their own children grow and develop while at the same time caring for children and earning an additional income. CDH homes have space available for new children, ages 6 weeks to 12 years old. Some providers also offer evening and weekend drop-in care. If you need child care or would like to become a provider, call 855-696-2934.
