We are extremely proud of the Kirtland Air Force Base Child Development Centers (CDC's) facilities and the dynamic programs available to your children! Our centers are accredited by the National Association for the Education of Young Children and certified by the Department of Defense (DoD). Our policies and Procedures are based on Air Force Instruction 34-144, Department of Defense Instruction 6060.2, Air Force Inspection Checklist and local operation instructions.

The CDCs offer care, guidance, and developmental activities for your children while you fulfill your obligations to the Air Force or enjoy educational, recreational, or social opportunities. A schedule of activities, including meal and nap times, is posted in each area. This is a flexible schedule which allows Child & Youth Program Assistants to respond to children’s individual needs and provide you with general times for scheduled activities.

CDC Extras

This program offers free childcare for parents experiencing stress due to deployment, on temporary duty or on a remote tour, caring for a child with special needs, an emergency situation, such as the illness of a family member, the family recently moving to the base or other unique family circumstances or hardships.

Give Parents a Break is held at the Gibson CDC. The Air Force Aid Society sponsors and funds the program, providing up to 4 hours of free childcare per month to families with special circumstances, who are referred by a helping agency. Usually on the first Friday of every month from 6:30-10:30 p.m. (except when otherwise noted). The care is provided at the Gibson Child Development Center (6 weeks to 6 years) and the Youth Center (ages 6 through 12 years); Reservations are taken on space available basis.

We ask you to register children in the program before reservations are accepted. Forms need for registration are:

  • Air Force Youth Flight Patron Registration
  • Proof of current immunizations
  • Physical (6 Weeks to provide)
  • Medical evaluations for children with special needs
  • Parent Agreement

If your family is experiencing any of the situations above or you think you might benefit from a few hours break from parenting responsibilities, talk with any of the following about a referral.

  • Airman & Family Readiness
  • The staff of the Child Development Centers, the Youth Center, the Family Child Care Office, the Family Support Center, or the - Family Advocacy Office
  • Your Unit Commander or First Sergeant
