Army Child Development Centers (CDC) are known as the "benchmark for the Nation". We are committed to upholding this national statement, while supporting the families of the Fort Gordon community.
The Fort Gordon Main CDC is accredited by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC). Our program provides a consistent, safe, and nurturing environment for children. Our curriculum and age appropriate activities will promote the social, emotional, physical, creative and cognitive growth of your child. All programs are staffed with competent, trained and nurturing Lead Child and Youth Program Assistance (CYPA), CYPA’s and Education Technicians.
Full day developmental programs are offered for infants, pre-toddlers, toddlers, and preschool children ages 6 weeks to 5 years of age.
The program also offers hourly care services by reservation, on a space available basis, to parents who need care on an intermittent basis for children ages 6 weeks to 5 years.
Pre-K is a free program, sponsored by the State of Georgia Lottery, which is available during the school year. Part-time care for children who need before-care (5:15 to 8 a.m.) and after-care (3 to 6 p.m.) will be offered at each Pre-K facility for a fee, per the U.S. Army Fee Policy. Children must be registered with CYS in order to register for the Pre-K program. Part-time care is a program that includes the use of both before and after care. The two programs will not be offered sparately. For more information on Part-time care, please visit our Parent & Outreach Services page.
