The dedicated professionals of the Children, Youth and Teen Programs (CYTP) are an integral part of the Marine and Family Services Division, providing developmentally-appropriate quality child care and recreational activities for children ages 6 weeks to 18 years.

The CYTP’s facilities include Child Development Centers located on Mainside and in the Tarawa Terrace and Midway Park housing areas, Youth Pavilions in Tarawa Terrace and Mainside, Brewster Teen Center on Mainside, and family childcare home services located throughout the base.  The Child Development Centers offer many programs including part-time care, toddler play-groups, and hourly care.  The two Youth Pavilions offer before and after school programs for children in kindergarten through 12 years of age as well as recreational activities for youth. The Brewster Teen Center offers after school programs, field trips, and life skills clubs. Family Child Care Home Providers offer childcare in government quarters. Each spouse and family completes a background check, homes are inspected by certified base personnel from Fire, Safety and Preventive Medicine and the provider receives training before receiving an authorization to conduct business in the home. Hours of operation and fees are negotiated between the provider and parent. Subsidies are available to families utilizing Family Child Care Homes. Please check with the Resource and Referral Office to find the best fit for your child. 

Patrons wishing to use CYTP services must first register their children through the Resource and Referral Office located in the Tarawa Terrace II Child Development Center, Bldg TT-113, Iwo Jima Blvd. Information on all CYTP programs may be obtained at the Resource and Referral Office, or by visiting
