Child care options available at NAVSTA Everett include the Child Development Center with a capacity of 146 children ages 6 weeks - 5 yrs. The CDC is conveniently located on the main Base. Care at the center is primarily geared toward those needing full-time child care.

The Child Development Home program currently has 29 certified providers caring for children ages 4 weeks - 12 yrs. CDH caregivers provide the same level of high quality care found in our on-base centers, but are often able to offer a little more flexibility in services. Not only are the homes required to meet Navy child care guidelines, but many homes are also licensed by the State of Washington. CDH providers offer developmental programs and receive ongoing training and home visits on a monthly basis. They offer full-time, part-time, drop-in and weekend care.

School Age Care is provided by the Marysville YMCA for summer camp care and before and after school care of youth age 5 (enrolled in kindergarten) through 12 years old at Navy subsidized prices. The School Age Care program provides youth with age appropriate before and after school activities, as well as holiday and summer day camps where kids will be able to meet new friends, learn new skills and participate in a variety of activities.

There child development programs are for active duty, DoD employees and contractors and reservists on active duty or inactive but in training that are stationed in Navy Region Northwest. Children of divorced parents qualify only if they live primarily with the active duty or DoD sponsor.

Special Needs children are cared for in all programs as long as reasonable accommodations can be made. Special Needs children must be processed through our Special Needs Board and must be enrolled in the Exceptional Family Member Program.

Fees for full time care (25 hrs/week or more) and before and after school care are determined by DODINST 6060 and are based on Total Household Income. A 20% discount is given to additional children in the family.

Drop-in care is available at the Child Development Home programs and in the Child Development Center (on a space available basis only) and costs $3 per hour per child.

Navy Region Northwest Child Care Resource and Referral handles the waiting list for NAVSTA Everett CDC and CDH programs. Care for children under the age of 2 is the highest demand so most likely to have a waiting list.
