We're coming to Holloman in a few months and I plan to go back to school in the fall. My son will be two in September. Does anyone have input on daycare quality and cost?

How is the child development center on base? I have friends with toddlers in the ones here on Fort Bragg. They say they are great and relatively inexpensive, but I don't know if it's the same everywhere.

I plan to call them soon to ask some questions, but I was hoping some of you might have opinions on the CDC, or recommendations for other good daycare options. I haven't been able to find much internet presence for local daycares.

Thanks!

I don't have much helpful information because I am looking for a daycare for my 2 year old as well, but I do know that the CDC on base is at full capacity and there is a very long wait list for toddlers and younger :( I would still call and check though, because I got that information a couple months ago, it might be different now. Good luck!

Yeah, I kind of expected there to be since there is just one! Here at Fort Bragg there are so many and sometimes they have a waiting list :/

We're arriving at the end of May, and I won't be going to school until Septemberish, so maybe that will be enough time to wait it out? I hope so!

I will call tomorrow and see when we can get on the list (probably when we arrive?), and how long the wait is. It seems like 3 months would be plenty but who knows.

Do you live on base? If so, how was the housing process for you? We hope to live on base, but we've never done it before so the whole process seems daunting.

I am going to go to the CDC tomorrow and inquire also, I'll let you know what I find out. We do live on base, We got pretty lucky because we decided to go to the Soaring heights office the day after we got here just on a whim and they actually had a house available right away for us, it's not a brand new one, but it is a just renovated one so we are very happy with it. I don't know what the housing situation is currently like though so you could check their website and/or call them to ask.
