Child Development Center
The RAF Mildenhall Child Development Center’s (CDC) mission is to assist Department of Defense (DoD) military and civilian personnel in balancing the competing demands of the accomplishment of the DoD mission and family life by managing and delivering a system of quality, available and affordable programs and services for eligible children birth through 5 years of age. The CDC provides care for up to 230 children ages 6 weeks to 5 years of age.
The CDC is not only certified by the Department of Defense, it is accredited by the National Association of Education for Young Children (NAEYC) and undergoes extensive inspections on a monthly basis for fire, health and safety and also a annual multi-disciplinary inspection and an unannounced Higher Headquarters Inspection. The program recently underwent a NAEYC reaccreditation visit which is due every 5 years. We are very thankful for such an active and positive Parent Involvement Committee (PAC) which provides for staff morale activities and outreach programming (i.e., book drives, staff appreciation gifts, facility clean-up projects, professional photographer for children’s portraits, etc).
RAF Mildenhall CDC continues to strive for being the benchmark for high quality child care programming!
