North Carolina families in need of childcare can call the child care hotline 1-888-600-1685 to be connected with child care options in their communities for school-age children up to age 12.
“Remote learning and new school schedules present challenges if you are a working parent. This resource can help make sure children have safe, reliable care. We will continue working on ways we can help families through this difficult time,” said Governor Cooper.
The hotline is open Monday through Friday 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Licensed child care professionals meeting the NCDHHS health and safety guidelines are available to provide care through this service.
