Childcare is available through the Child Development Centers (CDC) aboard base and in certified Child Development Homes. The Regional Childcare Resource and Referral Office (CCRR) maintains the consolidated wait lists for all six centers located in Metro San Diego. The centers are located on Naval Base San Diego, Naval Base Point Loma, MCRD, MCAS Miramar, Naval Medical Center and Murphy Canyon housing area. The office also maintains a list of Navy licensed Child Development Home providers (in-home care).

The Child Development Center provides weekly care for military and DOD civilian dependents between the ages of six weeks and five years.

There is a wait list for the CDC, however, your placement on the list begins as soon as an application is received. You may obtain an application from any military child development center.

Some of the programs offered at MCAS Miramar CDC include:

* Drop-in Child Care
* Part-Day Preschool Program
* The Before and After School Program

Youth Services offers programs for youth of all ages, including, the Part Day Preschool Program for 3 to 5 year olds, the School Age Care Program for 5 to 12 year olds and the Teen Center for 12 to 17 year olds. In addition, the Youth Program offers sports teams and other specialized programs. The Youth Center has recently been re-accredited by the National After school Association for the Education. The center encourages both fun and learning. A computer lab is open for students and homework help is available daily.
