COVID-19 Parent Application for Financial Assistance for Emergency Child Care

If you are an essential worker of COVID-19 Essential Businesses and Operations (as defined in Executive Order 121) and are in need of emergency child care because of COVID-19 closures, there are a number of resources available to ensure that your children are safe and taken care of.

1. To receive information about local options for children from infants through age 12, call the hotline at 1-888-600-1685. Families will be connected with child care programs that agree to meet updated health, safety and operational guidelines.

2. After calling the hotline, contact the recommended child care program to receive the proper enrollment forms.

3. If you are an essential worker who needs financial assistance for emergency child care, complete the COVID-19 Parent Application for Financial Assistance for Emergency Child Care at this link and submit it to your child care provider. You can also fill out a hard copy of this form at your child care facility. The application is also available in Spanish here.

Effective April 1, 2020, essential workers can get financial aid for child care through an Emergency Child Care Subsidy Program. Financial assistance will be offered for at least April and May.

 

 

Remote Learning Resources

Birth – 2 years, NC Pre-K/Pre-K, and K – 2nd Grade

In an effort to support teachers and families, DCDEE and the NC Department of Public Instruction Office of Early Learning have worked collaboratively to gather and create resources to provide weekly learning activities that do not require technology and are aligned to NC standards. Resources are organized by age and grade level. Knowing that children develop and learn at different rates, feel free to look at resources outside of your child’s age or grade level.
