    As we head back to school, children (and parents) are faced with a unique challenge this semester as they adapt to online learning.  Depending on what school district a child attends, the level and amount of online learning can vary.  Child and Youth Services is committed to being a stable factor the children in our programs.
    Fort Bragg School Age Services and Youth Services programs will remain open throughout the day in order to support our Soldiers and Families with school age children operating on a remote status.  ALL school age families needing care during the school year must apply for care at www.militarychildcare.com.  Your choice of care will depend on your school’s reopening plan.

    If your school has chosen virtual learning (whether 100% or 50%) as their re-opening plan you will need to choose COVID Full-day Care under the school out and seasonal camps option at Baez SAC (Main Post) or Morales SAC (Linden Oaks). 

    If your school has chosen to return to a traditional school schedule (100% in the classroom) you will need to choose before and/or after school care under the school year care at Baez SAC (Main Post) or Morales SAC (Linden Oaks). 

    Middle School and High School families will sign up at Tolson or Chay (Linden Oaks) Youth Centers with no need to register on the website.   Both centers will be open from 6:30 am to 7 p.m.

    For those students in the full-day programs, parents must provide staff with their student’s online learning schedule and supply the device and headphones necessary to support the online session.  Our staff will support students with logging into their learning platform and encourage them to stay on task.  Staff are not responsible for ensuring students complete their daily assignments or monitoring their progress.  Our facilities are equipped with WiFi but we cannot guarantee strength or load speeds.  

    Spaces are limited due to COVID 19 social distancing requirements and will continue to follow the DOD priority system.  All fees are based on total family income categories.  If you have any additional questions or concerns, please call 396-8110.
