Waiting List Information


6:30 a.m.-6 p.m. Monday – Friday

Unfortunately, there are occasions when the demand for child care exceeds the capacity of our facilities.

Both of our Child Development Centers (CDCs) are now on a centralized DoD program where parents who want to place their children on a list for child care should visit www.MilitaryChildCare.com. For quicker placement, the Main CDC has openings available in the preschool age group (3-5 years) for full-time care in Priorities 1 and 2. Please apply in www.MilitaryChildCare.com.

PLEASE NOTE:  For families accepting a full-time spot for childcare in Military Child Care (MCC) there is a $100 non-refundable deposit due within 24 hours of accepting the spot. This holds your child’s spot until the child starts care and it will be applied towards the first weekly payments.

If you have questions, please call the front desk at the Pete East CDC at 719-556-7460 or at the Main CDC at 719-554-9572.

In the Colorado Springs area, there are three other military installations with Child Development programs.
