Give Parents a Break. Military families are subject to unique stresses such as deployments, remote tours of duty, and extended working hours. This Navy Child & Youth Programs (CYP) program is designed to give family members a short break from parenting in order to help them deal with these types of stressful situations by providing childcare for children 6 weeks to 12 years of age. Centers are utilized for care at no cost for eligible families and at the hourly care rate ($4 per hour) for all other eligible CYP patrons, on a space available basis. Visit for more information and the most recent GPAB schedule.
