    Not sure about contact info or other particulars but St. Rita's Catholic Church has a preschool program that started last year and is already well thought of.

    information on area child care services in walton county:

    Okaloosa-Walton Child Care Services, Inc. ? a resource and referral agency, provides parents access to a comprehensive data base listing local child care providers, their locations, fee schedules and times of operation. Call:
    Okaloosa County office: 850-833-9333
    Walton County office: 850-892-8560

    Speaking from experience, there are not a lot of day care options in Walton County. Here are some that I know about. I will complete the following list when I hear from Walton Child Care Services (they are faxing a list to me):

    St. Rita Catholic Church (Santa Rosa Beach) - 850-267-2761
    Creative Learning Center (Destin) - 850-654-7274
    The Roane School (Destin) - 850-650-0137
    South Walton Montessori Academy (Rosemary Beach) - 850-231-5955

    I would imagine there are quite a few child care centers in the Fort Walton Beach area.

    Thank you so much! You are so helpful!

    I just called all of the schools that you provided, and none have openings. In fact, most had waiting lists...any other suggestions?

    I expected that. There is rarely room in normal times.

    TAKE NOTE - a daycare business in SoWal would be an excellent business to start.
