Emergency Child Care Lines Information and Use

Child Care Aware of NH powered by Southern New Hampshire services has been charged with collecting information on the pulse of early childhood and afterschool programs. We are looking for the status of programs being opened, closed, reopening and the number of vacancies available. Additionally, we are asking to be informed of the willingness of early childhood and afterschool programs to accommodate essential emergency personnel’s children.

As you are aware, Child Care Aware of NH has been making phone calls and has sent out a Preliminary Assessment Survey (see below). Please continue to keep us abreast of any changes in your programming by calling one of our emergency child care lines: (603) 578-1386 ext. 33 or (603) 578-1386 ext. 28. In addition, we are collecting information from programs regarding their urgent needs as they remain open and/or consider re-opening (see below Urgent Needs Survey).

We appreciate your cooperation and all that you do and have done to help the children and families of NH.

Although it may seem that some of the questions asked on the survey and assessment seem duplicative, we would appreciate your assistance in answering both as we are trying to gather as much information as possible at this time.

Thank you!
