Fort Irwin Child, Youth & School Services
CYSS is a network of systems and programs through which Fort Irwin provides quality child and youth development options that reduce the conflict between parental responsibilities and unit mission requirements.
The objectives of CYSS are to support readiness and contribute to the quality of life of families by providing developmentally appropriate care options for children and youth.
CYSS includes full-day, part-day and hourly child care programs; before and after school care programs; middle and teen programs; family child care; team sports and outreach sports programs; and resource and referral for on and off post.
CYSS programs are designed to foster and develop children’s physical, intellectual and socio-emotional capabilities regardless of the setting or length of time in care.
To register your child with CYSS, go to our Parent Central Services page. Annual registration is free and required for participation in any childcare or special activity programs (HIRED, SKIES Unlimited, etc.)
