Child care around Ft. Hood...

Does anyone know how that child care around Ft. Hood is? I am doing home day care there and want to know what I'm up against. I want to get kids fast because I will be bored if I'm just at home doing nothing for the first few months...

You need to be certified by the state. First aid and cpr cert are needed as well. Without those, no one will let you watch their kids.

Not sure what the going rate is for a babysitter because I have a nanny. Sorry. Good luck.

I'm going through all that soon... I just need to get some kiddos lined up...but I'm jumping the gun and being a little impatient. Lol

Daycares in the area charge around 85-90/wk for pottytrained kiddos (off post). Before/after school at daycares runs around 45-65/mo.

THats what I have paid in the recent past. As for care for children who are in diapers, I'm not sure what the cost is for that as my youngest hasn't been in diapers in a few years, and when he was he went to an on-post FCC provider.

You need to get your certifications BEFORE enrolling children. Your certification and stuff will take months to complete.

Do you do home day care too? It doesn't take to long to get certified, but getting cpr and first aid and having your first inspection and sll that make it take a little longer. I'm getting certified online. I'm ready to get things going now but don't have my address because we haven't moved yet so it's kinda hard.

Look into sittercity.com. Free for military. Once you are licensed, they will reference you to military parents looking for childcare.

It takes a lot longer to get approved then you think.

Are you planning on living on post or off post?
