TYPES OF CHILD CARE SETTINGS:
Child Care Centers - A center-based program allows opportunities for your child to socialize with other children his/her age in a setting designed for your children. Some daycare centers offer services such as transportation and specialized instruction. All centers have fixed hours, and fees are determined by total family income. The National Association for the Education of Young Child (NAEYC) accredits all of the Navy on-base centers in the region.
Child Development Homes - Child Development Homes are settings in which caregivers care for children in their own homes. Only homes licensed and registered with the state of Florida or through the Navy's Child Development Home Program are listed in the child placement list. This type arrangement offers a home-like, natural environment and more flexibility in the hours of operation to accommodate your work schedule. Some homes even provide care evenings and on weekends.
