Professional Development

Child Care Aware® of New Hampshire is dedicated to improving the quality of care that is available to families and children. Much of this commitment is reflected in our work with child care providers across the State. Some of the services we offer child care providers are:

Child Care Aware® of New Hampshire provides training and professional development opportunities from September to June to assist providers in enhancing and increasing their competencies. These opportunities include night and weekend trainings as well as other training opportunities such as E-Conferences,  Special Events and Peer Learning Communities.

Technical Assistance, Coaching and Consultation Services via on-site, virtual, phone and/or email support

Technical Assistance to providers can be done through phone, email, personal on-site visits and/or virtually. Our Training & TA Specialists can answer questions and provide information and resources on providing quality child care. This enhanced form of professional development comes in a variety of forms such as the Progressive Training and TA Program, Early Childhood Virtual TA Cohorts and Communities of Practice groups. 

Early Childhood Focused Collaboratives

Our Focused Collaboratives are meetings that are held once per month from September to June. Each of these meetings focus on a specific topic. These meetings generate relevant conversations around the specific topic, professional development opportunities, CCAoNH program updates and local and State information.


Child Care Aware® of New Hampshire has an E-Newsletter that is distributed bi-monthly to keep early childhood providers aware of what’s happening statewide and nationally on child care. If you would like your name added to our distribution list, you can email us at
