The Child Development Centers offer care for children ages six weeks to five years old. Our professionals are trustworthy and happy to care for your little ones. Many programs are offered to enhance social skills, logic and reasoning skills, promote language and literacy, build physical development, and much more!
Child care services are offered to eligible patrons at Maxwell AFB for full-time (weekly) care, before-and-after-school care, and hourly care. All services except hourly care and special openings require a completed application and time on a placement list. Specific procedures for the Resource and Referral Program can be found in SVYC Operating Instruction 34-4. All forms and program information can be downloaded from the CDC Document Library. https://militarychildcare.com/
Offered for children ages 6 months to 5 years of age at any one of the four CDCs located on Maxwell. Hourly care meets the needs of customers who need care on an irregular basis such as short term care for a doctor appointment, to work out or to volunteer in the community, on a space-available basis. The requirements regarding eligibility, registration, and immunizations are the same as those required for full-day care.
Parents are always welcome to visit and assist with their child's care to the extent that their duty permits.
The parent Advisory Board/involvement is a committee of all the CDC programs in conjunction with other CYPs. The DAB acts only in an advisory capacity, providing recommendations for improving services. The Chairperson of the DAB is a parent.
The Parent Advisory Committee selects a chairperson. Each chairperson attends the Program Parent Advisory Board meeting. The Parent Advisory Board meets with the Airman and Family Readiness Center Flight Chief and Center Directors at least quarterly and with the Mission Support Group Commander at least annually. The minutes of the parent advisory meetings are forwarded to the Mission Support Group Commander for review.
If you are interested in attending your center's parent advisory committee, please see your center's director for more information.
The Maxwell AFB and Gunter Annex Child Care Office is currently recruiting new providers. Prospective providers are trained, screened, and approved by applicable agencies. The Child Care Panel meets to approve or disapprove applicants. All orientation trainings are free and are held in the Child Care Office. Anyone who is interested in becoming a licensed Child Care Provider must contact the NAF HR Office.

"The teachers here are just so wonderful. My child learns new things each day."
"My child's caregiver has been especially impressive.

We have always enjoyed all the other caregivers but she really takes the cake! She stands out with all the information she gives us."

"All the providers are very helpful and willing to discuss my child's needs."
"I love my son's teachers and all the other teachers in this building. They treat us like family and are all great at what they do. I would like us to be able to show them how much they mean to each of us more often. Time and money makes this hard for me alone, but management needs to take their hats off to the men and women of Maxwell Care. YOU ALL ARE THE BEST!!"
