Update (30 June2020)

Currently CYP (including School Age Care and CDC) is in operating level CYP-2.

  • Parents are required to self-care for own children at home if Navy full-time telework agreement during COVID-19 pandemic is executed. Parent fees will be waived and space saved.
  • Parents with other non-Navy full-time/temporary telework agreements, who normally work from home, or who are student spouses, are required to self-care for own children. Parent fees will be waived and space saved.
  • In an effort to limit caregiver and family exposure and to align with CNIC guidance, Child & Youth Programs will be restricted to the following personnel only: Single/Dual Active Duty, Single/Dual DoD CIVs, and Active Duty with a working spouse who cannot execute job functions via telework/self-care for own children.

Our PMRF Child Development Center  (CDC) offers quality care to nurture your children with fun activities. And if you're new to Hawaii, rest assured that we're sensitive to how challenging our island lifestyle can be. We include local cultural events to enrich your child's experiences.
