The Child Development Center is designed to meet the needs of our children in a safe, loving environment.  Each child is respected and accepted for his/her individuality. Our programs are designed to meet the emotional, social, physical and intellectual needs of each child.  Activities are offered each day to stimulate a child’s creativity, natural need for exploration, and self-discovery.

Hours/Days of Operation

Hours are set to meet the needs of the majority of our U.S.Coast Guard customers. Currently 0630-1700. The Center is open Monday through Friday and closed on all federal holidays as well as the Friday after Thanksgiving.  Emergency closings (e.g. inclement weather) are announced via telephone hotline  609-898-6700.


The Center's capacity is set in accordance with the standards set by National Association for the Education of Young Children. We can educated 96 children.  They are divided into the following categories: 

  • Infants  - 2 classes of eight (8)
