My family and I are relocating to Brevard County, can anyone tell us where we can find nice homes for rent in an area with good schools and daycares? We are not at all familiar with this part of Florida so any help would be greatly appreciated!!

Uniformly the best schools are "beachside", with the exception of Viera which is pretty far inland and a tad remote in relation to the rest of the county.

Satellite Beach, Cocoa Beach and Merritt Island are the only three with public elementary/middle/high school coverage, all levels are A-rated schools.

Indialantic has Elementary/Middle levels in town (A-rated) and high schoolers head to Cocoa Beach High School (A-rated).

Indian Harbour Beach has just an elementary school (A-rated) but middle-schoolers go to Indialantic (A-rated), and onto Cocoa Beach for high school.

Melbourne Beach does not have any public schools in town, but head to neighboring Indialantic's schools.

Depending on your budget and housing expectations, I would suggest Satellite Beach and Merritt Island. They are the most family-oriented of all of the communities based primarily on things to do for kids (youth recreation leagues, etc).

Really? I live in Viera. 15 minutes (sticking to the speed limit) from the beaches at PAFB.

From my house to Indian River (Straight line) 1.9 miles. From my house to the sea (straight line) 6.6 miles.

I live a long way inland, don't I?

As for being 'remote in relation to the rest of the [Brevard] county' goes, what do you want?

I can fish, swim, sail, play golf (If I knew how) within a few minutes of where I live. (My house is adjacent to the the 3rd Tee-

There is a reasonable selection of restaurants within 10 miles and ther is a Zoo (not that I would go there every day.) I understand that Viera has decent shops (not interested, I'm male.)

Viera suits me - though perhaps it wouldn't suit everybody.

^^^ Believe it or not in Florida (and elsewhere) sprawl is not uniformly desirable. Having to drive up to 10 miles to a decent restaurant or almost 7 miles to the beach in a coastal area isn't appealing to me and many others, and is something worth pointing out should that be the case for the OP.
