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.
