Navy Region Mid-Atlantic Child & Youth Programs

Welcome to the Navy Child and Youth Programs (CYP)! Choosing child care and youth programming for your family is an important decision, which may be further complicated by military lifestyles. We know that military life comes with unique experiences and rewards of its own. While your children may face more than the usual challenges growing up, they also have the benefit of receiving high-quality early care and education from qualified professionals who can assist them in learning and in coping with these challenges. Navy CYP provides quality programs and services to nurture and support children as they navigate life in a military family, including care for your children during nontraditional work hours. The Navy is also dedicated to supporting the inclusion of children of all races, ethnicities, and abilities in CY programs. Navy policies, practices, and procedures reflect a commitment to inclusion and support of all children with and without disabilities or other special needs.

Saratoga Springs - School Liaison

The School Liaison’s primary function is to serve as a conduit between parents, educators and the command so that military-connected children experience a seamless transition during the transfer between schools.  Knowing that many military children move an average of every 2.9 years, School Liaison Officers can provide families with educational information to assist them as they begin their PCS planning.

The Child and Youth Education Services program supports military families with seven cores services provided by the School Liaison:

1. School Transition Services (PCS Cycle):  School Liaisons assist families with school transfers and help “level the playing field” for military children and youth.

2. Deployment Support:  School Liaisons connect educators with the military deployment support system to inform them about the cycles of deployment and the tools available to assist educators in working with military children.

3. Command, School, & Community Communications:  School Liaisons serve as subject-matter experts for installation commanders on K-12 issues, helping to connect command, school and community resources.

4. Home School Linkage and Support:  School Liaisons assist military families by gathering and sharing information on home schooling issues, policies and legislation from local school districts. They also help leverage military Child and Youth Program resources to support these families.

5. Partnerships in Education (PIE):  PIE creates a volunteer network of resources to support installation and community members who have a vested interest in the success of all youth.

6. Post-Secondary Preparations:  School Liaisons leverage installation and school resources to provide graduating military students with access to post-secondary information and opportunities.

7. Special Needs System Navigation:  School Liaisons provide information about installation and community programs and services, make referrals to the Exceptional Family Member Program, and offer assistance in navigating the administrative systems within local education agencies.

Exceptional Family Member Program (EFMP)

Enrollment in the Exceptional Family Member Program (EFMP) provides military families with special needs consideration during the assignment process and access to support services to help navigate the medical and educational system.

The Exceptional Family Member Program has three components:

  • Identification and enrollment of a family member with special medical or educational needs
  • Assignment coordination to determine the availability of services at the projected duty station
  • Support to help families identify and access programs and services

EFMP enrollment is mandatory and required for family members with special medical or educational needs; including spouses, children and dependent adults who:

  • Require special medical services for a chronic condition such as asthma, attention deficit disorder, diabetes, multiple sclerosis, etc.
  • Receive ongoing services from a medical specialist
  • Have significant behavioral health concerns
  • Receive early intervention or special education services through an individualized education program or individualized family service plan

Through the EFMP family support office, families can receive assistance with navigating military and community support systems. EFMP coordinators can assist service and family members with the enrollment process. Families can enroll by obtaining paperwork from the EFMP medical point of contact at their local military treatment facility. The forms for enrollment are:

Department of Defense Form 2792, "Family Member Medical Summary."
Department of Defense Form 2792-1, "Special Education/Early Intervention Summary."
Special Ed Connection, a free web-based resource available to Navy families, provides resources and tools that enable families to better understand special education requirements and available services.
Direct Step eCourses, another free web-based resource, can assist with navigating the complexities of special education laws and procedures.
Military OneSource offers assistance to families with special needs family members.

Youth Sponsorship

The Youth Sponsorship program is designed to assist young people in making the transition from one installation to another successfully. It is our goal to help incoming youth adjust and get connected with a youth sponsor at the installation. Youth Sponsors will provide information about area schools, attractions and the surrounding community. Local schools promote Youth Sponsorship through individual programs such as a Buddy System, Ambassadors, etc...  Programs are offered through classroom teachers in primary grades and the Guidance Counselors in intermediate and secondary levels. More information can be found by contacting your local school or your School Liaison SLO.NSASARATOGASPRINGS.fct@navy.mil.  or by phone at: 518-886-0200 x161.

Local Child & Youth and MWR programs offer family events to encourage military family unity and to come together to interact throughout the year. Extracurricular activities such as, Seasonal festivals, Month of the Military Child events, Kid’s Fun Run & Back to School event, Trick or Treating and the Children’s New Year’s Eve party are some highlights of our year.
