Where and How to Register Your Child
If you are NEW to Fort Stewart CYS Services:
Complete the pre-registration online at https://webtrac.mwr.army.mil/webtrac/stewartcyms.html (CYS Services Online) and a staff member from Parent Central Services will contact you upon receiving your pre-registration details. You may also contact Parent Central Services (912-767-2312) during regular office hours to set up a registration appointment.
Be prepared to bring the following completed documentation, otherwise your appointment may be postponed or rescheduled:
Proof of child’s eligibility (DoD ID Card or Birth Certificate, if not old enough for an ID Card).
Child’s up-to-date immunization/shot record (GA Immunization Certificate form 3231).
Child’s Health Screening Tool #1 (required within 30 days of initial registration and updated annually).
Proof of total household income, such as LES/pay vouchers. If spouse is a student, bring official proof of school enrollment and full-time schedule. Failure to provide income/school verification will result in household being placed in the highest income category- CAT9.
At least one LOCAL emergency contact name and phone number (1 additional emergency contact required within 30 days).
CYSS Sponsor/Program Agreement (DA Form 5226-R), Application for DoD Child Care Fees (DD Form 2652), and USDA Income Eligibility Statement Form.
Families that have been registered at another installation prior to transferring to Fort Stewart should contact our CYSS Parent Central Services office so that your registration information can be transferred into our database. A valid e-mail address is required to confirm information.
Pre-registering online (for new CYS Services patrons) and transferring of data (for existing CYS Services patrons from another installation) will reduce time spent at the registration office. A typical new registration can take 45 minutes or longer at the office depending on how many Family members you will be registering with CYS Services.
If you are a current Fort Stewart CYS Services patron updating your annual pass registration, contact Parent Central Services to schedule an appointment.
Fees are charged monthly regardless of the number of work days in a month, the number of federal holidays or unexpected closures due to command decisions or acts of severe weather. Fees may be paid as follows:
- Billing for Full-day, Before School and After School Programs is processed semi-monthly on the 1st and the 15th of the month. Parents have the option to pay in person or online. Late payment fee of $10.00 is charged on 6th business day of the billing cycle per child/per program.
- Billing for SKIESUnlimited is processed on the 1st of the month. Parents may pay in person (at any CDC, at SAC or at Parent Central Services) or online. Participants with an outstanding balance after the 5th day will be dropped from the class roster. Sponsor's are responsible for fees incurred due to non-payment through DD-139 Garnishment.
- Youth Sports fees are due at the time of enrollment. They are not billed after the intial enrollment cost.
- Hourly Care Fees are due at the time of pick up.
In accordance with DoD and DA directives military child care fees are based on Total Family Income (TFI) not military rank or civilian grade. The Military Services subsidize fees on a sliding scale for every Family regardless of rank/grade or income. TFI is all earned (gross) income including wages, Basic Allowance for Housing (BAH), Basic Allowance for Housing with Dependents Rate (BAH RC/T), salaries, tips, special duty pay (flight pay, active duty Demo pay, sea pay) etc., regardless of whether they live in government housing or off the installation. Failure to provide required income verification will result in assignment to highest Fee Category 9.
If a childcare space is not immediately available, you may choose to use our FCC program or hourly care services. You may also elect to be added to our waiting list. When a parent accepts a space, a 10% non-refundable deposit is required - the initial payment will equal 10 percent of the monthly payment rounded to the nearest dollar which will be credited to the first month's payment.
Multiple Child Reductions (MCR): A 15 percent MCR is applied when more than one child is enrolled in regularly scheduled child care program offered by CYSS Services (excluding camps). The second child and subsequent children will receive the discount.
CYSS Special Needs Accomodation Process (SNAP)
Fort Stewart CYS Services has a Special Needs Accommodation Process (SNAP) in place for children who have special needs. If your child suffers, for example, from allergies or Attention Deficit Disorder, or has been diagnosed with a physical or psychological condition, this accommodation process brings together child care professionals, physicians and counselors to determine how CYSS can best meet the needs of your child.
All Families are required to fill out the Army CYSS Health Screening Tool #1. If it is determined that your child has a special requirement, the office will forward your information to schedule a SNAP meeting. All forms must be returned to Parent Central Services office and forwarded to the Army Public Health Nurse for medical review (or referred for a full SNAP Team Meeting, if required) before you can complete the registration. CYSS Registration is not complete until the SNAP process has been finalized with our APHN. Any conditions that are not disclosed and are found through medical review may require additional forms and may hold up the registration process.
Attention Active Duty Only: Parents of all child with special needs are encouraged to visit the Exceptional Family Member Program (EFMP) office, located on the first floor of WINN Army Community Hospital, to be assessed for enrollment into the program. There is an enrollment packet that can be filled out by your healthcare provider at the same time the CYSS medical action plans are completed. EFMP enrollment may qualify your child for additional free respite care.
