COVID-19 - Child Care Resources  posted-08/28/2020

With school now underway, many working parents are facing the added stress of finding a safe place for their children during the day that can also support their remote learning. The good news is that there is ample licensed child care available across the state, and we are making it as easy as possible for families to find it.

 In partnership with Child Care Resources and Referral, the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services created a free hotline to connect families to licensed care for their school-age children. 

 Families can call the hotline at 1-888-600-1685.

 

Help families know that they have options by:
