Emergency Child Care Phones Lines
In light of COVID-19, Child Care Aware of NH is establishing Emergency Child Care Lines to better assist families in finding emergency child care by updating program vacancies and to track program closures. If we have your updated Provider Information Form, it is not necessary to call unless your vacancy information has changed.

If you are closing due to COVID-19 please contact us via the below phone number or via email at with subject line "COVID-19 Program Closure". Please share your program information (Program name, city, zip, total capacity, total number of families impacted,) when you anticipate closing, for what length of time and how families are being charged if they are. If your program is remaining open, please contact us with that information as well using subject line "COVID-19 Open for Business". These subject lines will help us in our tracking. We are updating our database with this information, and it will be helpful for referral purposes. We are hoping to work with one of our national partners today regarding changes in availability and accessibility of child care due to COVID-19. Thank you in advance for assisting us obtain this information to better support you and the families of New Hampshire during this time. We will be contacting all programs about closures soon.
