CYSS Holiday Hours
From 19 December-3 January the Monterey Road Child Development Center (MRCDC) and Porter Youth Center (PYC) will observe exodus hours. Hours of operation will be 7:00am– 5:30pm. Should your child need duty related extended care, please contact Parent Central Registration.
Also, MRCDC and PYC will be closing at 12:00pm on 24 December. They will be conducting sign-ups ahead of time for children who will be needing care. Please note, if you do not sign your child(ren) up for care, care will not be available to them as the centers will only staff for the number of children signed up. Please see the front desk at MRCDC or PYC for more information.
Child Release Policy:
A friendly reminder to parents and guardians: children will not be released to parents who show any signs of being under the influence during pick up. We know that several organizations host holiday parties this time of year and would like to remind you that this is a very strict policy for obvious reasons. Please make safe decisions when it comes to drinking and driving, especially when children are involved.

Requirements to register your children for services at CYSS

Contact Parent Central Services to request all necessary froms and paperwork to make your registration as smooth as possible. For children with special needs, additional information will be required prior to registration and enrollment into any program.
Fees are charged monthly regardless of the number of work days in a month,
the number of federal holidays or unexpected closures due to command decisions or acts of God.
All fees are payable in advance and may be paid as follows:
Billing is run semi-monthly on the 1st and the 15th of the month. Parents have the option to pay in monthly or semi-monthly installments. Late payment fees are charged after the 5th business day.
In accordance with DoD and DA directives military child care fees are based on Total Family Income (TFI) not military rank or civilian grade. The Military Services subsidize fees on a sliding scale for every Family regardless of rank/grade or income. TFI is all earned (gross) income including wages, Basic Allowance for Housing (BAH), Basic Allowance for Housing with Dependents Rate (BAH RC/T), salaries, tips, special duty pay (flight pay, active duty Demo pay, sea pay) etc., regardless of whether they live in government housing or off the installation.
If a childcare space is not immediately available, you may choose to use our FCC program or hourly care services. You may also elect to be added to our waiting list. When a parent accepts a space, a non refundable deposit is required - the initial payment will equal 10 percent of the monthly payment rounded to the nearest dollar which will be credited to the first month's payment.
