Child Development Center

Navigating Navy Childcare Excellence

The Child Development Center (CDC) implements the "Creative Curriculum" by Teaching Strategies as well as the Gold Assessment Tool. The Creative Curriculum is CYP's roadmap in meeting the basic needs of children, fostering social/emotional development, developing secure attachments while supporting cognition and brain development in a safe and nurturing environment. The Gold assessment tool guides the caregiver on the child's areas of strength and a base point to scaffold to the next level of learning.
