DoD Child Care Fee Policy SY 2021-2022

Attention CYS Patrons and Staff,

The purpose of this notification is to inform CYS patrons about the implementation of the School Year (SY) 2021-2022 Army Child and Youth Fee Policy as required by the SY 2021-2022 Department of Defense (DoD) Child Development Program Fee Policy; implementation will be in effect September 2, 2021.

The Department of Defense (DoD) provides annual instruction and parents fees for child care programs. The Army Child and Youth Fee implementation guidance assures that Families are provided predictable, consistent, and equitable fees for child and youth programs across the Army. Child care fees are administered by installation Child and Youth Services programs. The standardized Army Fee Policy provides predictability for Military families as they relocate.

The CYS team remains sensitive to the impact this will have on all our families.  

Please contact CYS Parent Central Services at +1 (703)805-5555, if you have any questions or concerns.

CYS Volunteer

CYS Volunteer

Parent volunteers are a very important resource for CYS. Registered children/youth benefit immensely from the knowledge and skill that volunteers provide to our programs. We're looking for enthusiastic people who want to help out, sharing their talents assisting and leading various activities such as reading to children, participating in field trips, making games, repairing toys, sewing with kids, etc.

Start by becoming a registered volunteer through Army Community Service's (ACS) Go-Volunteer to find out where your talents can be best used within CYS. By keeping track of your volunteer hours, you can qualify for Parent Participation Points.

Extracurricular Instructional Classes
For children 3 to 18 years of age

SKIES Unlimited stands for “School of Knowledge, Inspiration, Exploration and Skills” with the word “Unlimited” for the unlimited possibilities that this program provides children and youth: 

  • All participants must be registered with CYS
  • On-going enrollment for most classes (New students may need to wait for open enrollment)
  • Currently enrolled SKIES students will be automatically re-enrolled into the next session for most classes to retain their space. Payment for the session must be made before the first day of class.
  • Classes will be filled on a first paid basis.

Children and Youth that are currently registered in CYS may be able to enroll for some of the SKIES classes using WebTrac.
