To provide programs supporting the Army Family covenant for young children reducing the conflict between a Soldier’smission requirements and his or her parental responsibilities and mission requirements.


Curriculum based on the "Creative Curriculum" for infants, toddlers, and preschoolers. All programs are age appropriate and based on developmental stages of children. Parent participation is encouraged in order to make our developmental program a success.

Lesson plans and curriculum based on individual child's needs.

Open-door policy. Parents are invited to come and visit anytime during the day.

Outside play area divided into separate areas for each age-group. Children go for walks and visit various areas of Letterkenny.

Field trips are planned for our older groups.


A few of our objectives are:

Learning Environment - indoor and outdoor learning to encourage play and exploration.

Creative - to promote children to use their imagination and provide activities that encourage the use of the five senses.

Social - to provide an environmental experience to help children develop social skills, feelings, and respect for others.

Programs Offered

Ages 6 weeks – Kindergarten Letterkenny Army Child Development Center (CDC) is an on-post child care center that offers full-day, part-time and hourly care for children in rich and stimulating environments where children can develop motor, cognitive, social and emotional skills through a balance of exploration and planned curriculum. Learning activities are designed to support the natural development of children and include individual, small group and large group experiences. Our philosophy is based on the idea that children learn practical life skills through programs and activities that emphasize fun, play, action, group and individual challenges supported by the National Association for the Education of Young Children standards.

Child Nutrition Program

Meals are provided as part of fee (breakfast, morning snack, lunch and afternoon snack).

We dine in a family-style setting where children are encouraged to serve themselves and help clean up. Self-reliance skills are taught.

We participate in the US Dept. of Agriculture Child Nutrition Program. Our pre-approved menus comply with USDA meal requirements.

USDA supplies nutrition guidance, educational materials and a financial reimbursement.




All fees are based on total family income. Children must be registered in Central Registration before care is provided at the center. For information on enrollment and the fee schedule please click the Central Registration link in the right column.
