McChord CDC West
Adults, including parents at pick up/drop off, are required to wear masks at CYS facilities effective Monday, July 20. Please visit https://jblm.armymwr.com/promos/covid for program and facility updates.
CYS continues to offer childcare based on the DOD Priority List -- currently placing all Single/Dual AD military (1C) and as many AD with working spouse (1D) as possible. CYS continues to evaluate incoming families at the 1C priority category.
As we head into the school year with a change in the DOD Priority List (effective 1 Sep) and continuing guidance from the CDC on total capacity, we want to ensure families understand the need to seek alternate care options. This will mostly affect DOD civilians (1E), as we no longer project to have space available for care for families in that category. DOD personnel are eligible for fee assistance for care off-base through Child Care Aware of America. We encourage these families needing immediate care to find a location off-base first that accepts a CCAoA subsidy and then come into Parent Central to receive a statement of non-availability/waiver to secure a childcare space off-base. We recommend seeking a location first that qualifies and then going through the process to obtain the waiver because waivers are valid for 10 days only. For more information, the CCoA website is www.childcareaware.org
In a limited capacity, all Child Development Centers, School Age Centers and Family Child Care homes are open. In an effort to maintain the health and safety of children in care and CYS team members, safety protocols will continue.
