CENTRAL REGISTRATION

 

Our mission is to assist military and DoD civilian personnel in balancing the competing demands of the mission and family life by providing quality and affordable programs and services for eligible children and youth 2 weeks through 18 years of age. We are here to provide information on the Child and Youth Programs including:

REGISTRATION

Registration for the Child Development Centers is handled through militarychildcare.com. After we confirm your priority, parents/guardians will be contacted by central registration when a space is available. Parents will have 24 hours to accept that space, and come to the central registration to begin the formal registration process and pay a $50.00 deposit to secure the space. After the space has been offered, the parent/guardian will attend a scheduled mandatory orientation.

QUALIFIED TEACHERS

As a condition of employment, all candidates must have a physical, all immunizations, and secure a local and national agency background check. Before employees work in the classroom, they undergo an intensive New Employee Orientation which includes safety and emergency procedures, sanitation and health practices, and guidance techniques.

PRACTICAL LEARNING

We are responsible for supporting the development of the whole child, meaning all areas of development are considered inter-related and equally important. Our program acknowledges that children learn through active, hands-on involvement with their environment, peers, and caring adults. We respect each child’s unique interest, experiences, abilities and needs, thus allowing us to be responsive to and appropriate for each child. Children are valued as individuals, as well as part of a group.

PARENTS/GUARDIANS WELCOME

Parents/Guardians are encouraged to participate in class activities, field trips and the Parent Advisory Board. Parent University classes are offered throughout the year at the multiple centers. Local information in the Anchorage community is also available.

“We started working with Dana and Tanya last April to get a spot in the summer SAP program and a spot at Talkeetna CDC, and these two ladies could not have been more helpful for our family.  We were scrambling to find summer care for our kids because I was starting a new job and they worked above and beyond to give us options and help us get the spot we needed.”

“Our experience at central registration has been amazing.  They are always kind and helpful and we love going to them with a problem because they always have the solution. Thank you to Tanya and Dana! Our family is grateful you are at JBER!””
