Child and Youth Services (CYS) is an essential family program that directly supports the military lifestyle and reduces the conflict between parental responsibilities and Soldier unit mission requirements. CYS is operated under the Directorate of Family and Morale, Welfare and Recreation. Programs are supported by user fees and limited congressionally appropriated funding. The guidelines and minimum standards for the Army’s CYS program are directed by AR Child Development Services 608-10 dated Feb 1997, IMCOM CYS Regulation 608-10-1 dated 17 Mar 2020, DoDI 6060.02 and DoDI 6060.04 Youth Programs Policy. CYS Services seeks to support three major elements: Children, Parents, Community and Command.
To meet the needs of all three elements, eight major program components are offered: Full Day; Part Day and Hourly Care are offered and the Child Development Centers and Family Child Care Homes; Before and/or After School Care and Summer Camps are offered at School Age Centers and after school, Camps offered at Middle School/Teen Youth development programs. Sports and Fitness programs; School Support Services (School Liaison Officers) and SKIES Unlimited Instructional Classes are also offered to all CYS registered children; Our CYS programs have received DoD certification.

Fee assessments are done at PCS at enrollment and annually thereafter.

DOD Priorities for Child Care
Priority System: Priority for Care is administered by MCC based on eligibility requirements. Individual priority is verified at the time of enrollment and annually thereafter.
Hourly care is intended for the family that needs care on an occasional basis. Enrollment requirements are to be met before child (ren) are able to utilize services. Each patron pays for actual time reserved if time used is less. Patrons pay late fees if reservation is not extended in advance. Each patron will make their own reservations for their child (ren). Reservations are accepted up to 30 days in advance of desired reservation date. Walk-ins are accepted on a space-available basis. Patrons may use up to 20 hours of hourly care per week. Cancellations will be made 24 hours prior to the reservation time. If cancellation of reservation is not received, parents will be charged for time reserved. Payment for non-cancellation must be made before further reservations will be accepted. Payment for hourly care may be paid in advance or at the time that care is provided. Late fees will follow standard CYS late fee policies. Families needing regularly scheduled care should consider enrollment in a part-day program. The CYS Parent Central Services Office can assist in finding the best option for patrons.

The Child Development Centers of the USAG-HI are places of learning and nurturing for all of our children from birth to preschool. Utilizing the creative curriculum, our approach balances both teacher-directed and child-initiated learning, with an emphasis on responding to children's learning styles and building on their strengths and interests.
We provide opportunities for learning in literacy, math, science, social studies, the arts, technology, and personal hygiene and health. However, we never lose sight of the importance of children's social/emotional development. The most important goal of our early childhood curriculum is to help children become enthusiastic learners.
