A grand re-opening ribbon cutting ceremony was held at the Child Development Center and the Youth Teen Center on board Naval Support Activity, Bahrain, Jan 19, 2010.

The ceremony marked the opening of the CDC and YTC which have been closed since U.S. military family members stationed in Bahrain left the country due to a change in Department of Defense policy that went into effect July 2004. All family members were authorized to return to Bahrain, June 29, 2009.

The CDC provides full-time and hourly care based on space and availability. Groups focused on relative ages and abilities will be created to ensure proper supervision and care of young children. The School Age Care program is designed to enhance the school day by providing before and after-school care, summer camp and hourly care.

A teen welcome event was also held at the YTC to allow teens to become familiar with their new facilities.

Families seeking more information can contact the Child and Youth Program Director at 439-9125.
