Amanda WilsonWe're heading over to Hawaii as well in December! Family of 6, Hubby is E6 4 kids. A cat. Still trying to decide on base or off base. Don't mind a commute but want to be in an enjoyable place to live! Would be nice to pay less so we have more money to go adventuring on the island.

Emily Allison BrockwayHave you tried looking into resort career opportunities? A lot of times places like that have people who take photos for people to buy later

From the mailbox, "We will be moving there next Nov, so we have time to figure everything out, but I was googling preschools on the island and everything I'm finding is around $650-$1,200 a month. Is that right!? Or am I looking at the wrong places? That seems crazy to me. I would only want a few half days per week. Are there affordable preschools on the island?" ... See MoreSee Less

Monika SerrThat is right... I do drop in care at the CDC on base twice a week they charge $4 hr.. its all depends if they have room for my son. He loves it.

Natasha ScottYup just put my child in daycare last week. The cheapest was about 650 and up. The one I found and had space and I actually liked is costing me 900.00 (full time).

Christine Grieco ShepardWe paid almost $600 a month for half days in miliani. Even on post preschool is expensive and the wait list is super long

Felice ClarkI agree with the other comment to put yourself on the waitlist for the CDC ahead of time. Preschools can be pretty pricey here. Where are you looking? If you need the Mililani area, I can tell you of a few I found that weren't TOO bad in price.

Liz Compton DevineGet on the wait lists for the various on base preschools. I pay $150/month for Tues/Thurs part day. Placement can take forever though, so get on the wait lists now. Militarychildcare.com

Jenny MartinIroquois Point Preschool is AMAZING...great teachers and a director that all have a true passion for making learning FUN! It used to be co-op, where parents volunteered once month in the classroom. While parents are still involved in many ways, now they have full time assistants for each teacher. You will truly experience the meaning of the word "ohana" here. Both my son and I made lifelong friendships. The only complaint I have ever heard is that they stop at preschool, everyone wishes they would continue through elementary grades.
