What We Do
The MHAFB Child Development Program is certified by the Department of Defense and is fully accredited by the National Academy of Early Childhood Programs (NAEYC). The activities planned for the children, the way classrooms are organized, the daily schedule, and the way the teachers interact with the children are all designed to accomplish the goals of our curriculum and prepare your child for a successful productive future.

The practices of the Air Force Child Development Programs are based on current knowledge of child development and early childhood education. We are responsible for supporting the development of the whole child, meaning all areas of development are considered interrelated and equally important.
Our program acknowledges that children learn through active, hands-on involvement with their environment, peers, and caring adults. We respect each child’s unique interests, experiences, abilities, and needs, thus allowing us to be responsive to and appropriate for each child.
Children are valued as individuals, as well as part of a group. Likewise, our program respects and supports families’ ideals, cultures, and values in nurturing children. We advocate for children, families, and early childhood professionals within our programs.
