What To Know When Looking for School-Age Child Care

With school underway, many families are looking for child care options that support remote learning. The NC Department of Health and Human Services (NCDHHS), which oversees licensed child care in the state, has prioritized supporting families in accessing safe child care programs that promote learning for children ages 5 to 12 who are enrolled in public schools. Read more to understand what resources are available to families who may need child care options during the school day (also available in Spanish).

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.
