Child Youth Services Programs

The child care services at Dugway Proving Ground typically include a variety of programs tailored to meet the needs of children of different ages, from infants to school-aged children. These services often encompass full-day care, part-day preschool programs, and before and after school care. Recognizing the irregular and demanding schedules of military life, these programs are designed to offer flexibility and reliability, accommodating the early morning, late evening, and weekend care requirements that can arise due to the parents' military obligations.

Furthermore, the child care facilities on base are committed to maintaining high standards of safety, education, and emotional support. They are staffed by professionals trained in early childhood education, who are adept at creating a welcoming and engaging environment for children. These programs not only focus on the physical care of the children but also on their developmental needs, offering activities and curriculums that promote cognitive, social, emotional, and physical development. By providing such comprehensive child care services, Dugway Proving Ground ensures that military families have the support they need to thrive, both on and off duty.
