NSA Bethesda 24/7 Center is now open. The 24/7 Center serves children between the ages of 6 weeks to 12 years in a Navy Child and Youth Program facility that is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days per year. Care can be provided up to 24 hours. The concept of 24/7 centers is developed to meet the needs of military watch standers, shift workers, and military personnel called for other special duties during non-traditional hours.
To qualify, parents must submit work schedules issued from the command or printed on letterhead (for civilian schedules), and must contain the supervisor's name and contact information. The schedule is essential for developing appropriate child and staff schedules and therefore, enrollment in the program is contingent upon receipt of work schedules in a timely manner.
