Many of you know that we already have a page that allows us to share important early childhood news, fresh ideas and CCAoNH professional development opportunities with providers. By creating a second Facebook page, the Child Care Aware of NH Family Page, CCAoNH will be able to share information about our services specific to families. The new Facebook page will be a place where families can learn more about quality care, developmental information, Vroom tips and so much more.

Resources to Share With Families
Vroom by Text
Vroom is now accessible by text. Vroom by text is a great way to reach families without needing a smart phone or a data plan.

A child's first 5 years are when they develop the foundation for all future learning. With Vroom, you can make any moment with your child a brain building one.

Other Early Childhood News & Updates
Did you know that 8 out every 10 mothers in NH leaves the hospital breastfeeding, but only 2 of them continue breastfeeding for the full 6 months?
Many moms say they quit nursing because they had to go back to work. It doesn't have to be that way.
It’s an easy fix if we work together! Let's work together to give babies the best nutrition possible and raise healthy families in our amazing State!
