CYS Services Mission:
Our mission is to provide a consistent, safe, nurturing environment that promotes the physical, social, emotional, cognitive and creative development of children and youth while responding to the unique needs of military families.
Child, Youth & School Services are essential family programs which directly support the military lifestyle and reduce the conflict between parental responsibilities and mission requirements. We strive to meet the needs of our patrons and the installation mission through four systems:
1) Child Development Services (Child Development Centers & Family Child Care)
2) School Age Center
3) Youth Services
4) Parent Outreach Services
5) School Support Services
These services are a supplement and support to our families who are the primary agents in the care and development of their children. CYS Services offers a range of age appropriate opportunities and activities for children and youth ages 4 weeks to 18 years.
Our goal is to help each child/youth develop to his/her potential. Through our programming we foster positive individual self-concept, strengthen emotional well being, provide productive social interaction and enhance intellectual and physical growth. We strive to provide a safe environment, enriching experiences and loving care for your children and youth during their stay with us.

Fort Leavenworth Child, Youth, & School Services recognizes the challenges our soldiers and their families face every day and provide CYS Services support services so the soldier can concentrate on their job – keeping our country safe. We know that our soldiers and those supporting our soldiers can focus on their tasks better, knowing their children are safe and supervised in quality child and youth programs.
We understand that our patrons come to us with a variety of childcare needs and we are prepared to assist them in locating services that will best meet the needs of their family. As children grow older, their developmental needs change, and we want the transitions between programs to be smooth and beneficial to everyone who utilizes our services.
CYS Services’ programs and facilities create a warm, happy, safe, and healthy place for children and youth. The programs reflect knowledge and understanding of the growth and development of children and youth. Programs are both age and individually appropriate; that is, the program is designed for the age group served and is implemented with attention to the needs of the individual child enrolled. The programs are designed to provide experiences which enhance and support the physical, emotional, social, cognitive, creative, and positive character development of each child/youth, while responding to the unique needs of our Army families.
