Navy Region Northwest Child Care Resource and Referral (CCRR) is the point of entry for all families seeking Navy child care for their children. The CCRR maintains the Central Enrollment and Waiting List (CEWL) for the region. The CCRR staff can assist you with all of your childcare needs and maintains a library of resource materials and can provide you with information, resources, and support to help you make a well-informed child care decision. For more information, you can contact the CCRR toll free at 1-888-463-6697 extension 3, Monday - Friday, 8:30 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.

You must register your child in advance for care services at the Child Development Center (CDC), Child Development Home (CDH) Care, or School Age Care (SAC) Program.

You will need to download the DD2606 Request for Care, Central Enrollment and Waiting List Policy and the Statement for Special Needs.

You can fax (425-304-3385) your application in advance to be placed on the waiting list. You can also pick-up and return a registration packet at the local CDC, CDH or SAC locations and they will forward it to the CCRR office for processing.

Fees for our programs are determined by DODINST 6060 and are based on Total Household Income (THI).

The NAS Whidbey Island Child Development Center (CDC) offers child care for children 6 weeks to pre-kindergarten age. The Center has a capacity of 115 children and is open to active duty members with dual active duty and single parent active duty having priority. The CDC is located in Building 2679, on the corner of Regatta and Clover Street, adjacent to the Victory Park housing development. The Center is open 6:00 a.m. - 6:00 p.m. weekdays.

The CDC is primarily geared towards providing full-time child care; however, limited hourly care is available when full-time children are out for the day.

Respite Care is available on a case-by-case basis with special needs children having priority. For information concerning respite care, please call 360-257-6423.

Naval Air Station Whidbey Island offers a Child Development Homes (CDH) Program, where caregivers provide childcare services to youth from 6 weeks up to 12 years of age. They offer the same level of high quality care found in our CDC but often provide a little more flexibility in services such as evening and weekend care.

Our hourly child care program is offered currently in the CDH program at the Chapel and includes a developmental program and snacks. Registration is required prior to making reservations by calling 1-888-463-6697, extension 3.

School Age Care (SAC) Program provides highly structured recreational and educational programs with age appropriate activities for youth before and after school as well as holiday and summer day camps for ages 5 years (and enrolled in kindergarten) through 12 years of age.
