School Age Care

To ensure the safety of our caregivers and children, health screenings are still required, and masks are still required for all personnel regardless of vaccination status. Thank you for your cooperation.

Navy Child and Youth Programs, School Age Care program (SAC) provides critical childcare service for eligible military families. Services include care before and after school, and transportation to and from the program. We also offer full-day care on days when schools are having in-service days or on break. Our staff works in close partnership with parents to meet the needs of each child and provide a safe, healthy, and nurturing environment.

SAC is accredited by the Council on Accreditation and affiliated with both the Boys and Girls Clubs of America and 4-H

In response to the ongoing pandemic, SAC is now offering services to support students who are virtual schooling. The program provides dedicated space and time for the students to participate in virtual or remote learning.

Holiday break camps are scheduled in coordination with local school district calendars. The camps include tons of fun activities, field trips, service projects and more. Camps are offered for the fall, winter and spring breaks. During the summer break, weekly camps are offered.
