New Hampshire Emergency Child Care Collaborative creates statewide system to provide care for the children of essential workers during the COVID-19 pandemic.

More than 250 child care centers have now been designated emergency providers through the state’s Emergency Child Care Collaborative, which is supporting the families of essential workers during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Collaborative was created by the New Hampshire Department of Health and Human Services in partnership with the Charitable Foundation and child care professionals to ensure a robust and effective system of emergency child care for New Hampshire parents who are providing essential services — including health care workers, first responders, grocery workers, postal workers and more — during the current public-health crisis. More than 5,500 children are being cared for in the centers statewide.
