Give Parents a Break for Deployed Families

Every parent and child deserves a little break from demands of full time parenting!

The “Give Parents a Break” program is designed to provide eligible parents with free child care one Saturday a month at the Ellsworth Child Development Center (CDC) and Youth Center. Children must be between 6 weeks – 12 years of age. “Give Parents a Break” is normally scheduled for the fourth Saturday of each month from 12:00pm to 4:00pm. This program is a collaborative effort between the Air Force Aid Society and the Ellsworth Child Development Center. Please stop by the Airman & Family Readiness Center with a copy of the sponsor’s TDY/Remote PCS orders to obtain a certificate. Certificates can also be obtained from a Chaplain or First Sergeant.

You must be signed up by the Friday, two weeks before the Saturday.

Please contact the CDC (385-2488) for information or to learn of the next Give Parents a Break date and time.
