The new National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) wing of the Peltier Child Development Center (CDC) was formally opened during a ribbon cutting ceremony held Sept. 15.

A result of an ongoing partnership between the U.S. Navy and NOAA, the new wing adds nine additional classrooms, bringing the total number of classrooms at the Peltier CDC to 19. The center can now accommodate 248 children ages 6 weeks to 5 years old.

Capt. Stanley Keeve., commander, Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam, was the guest speaker at the ceremony.

“Our CDCs provide high-quality early child care and education from qualified professionals who can assist our young children in learning and coping with some of the challenge of military life,” Keeve said. “This wonderful facility, where learning and inquiry are encouraged, will provide a stable foundation for early learning and readiness.”

There are eight Child Development Centers on Oahu. The Peltier CDC is located at building 1928, 530 Peltier Avenue. For more information, visit www.greatlifehawaii.com.
