The State of North Carolina is urging all families who can keep their children at home, with a responsible adult, to do so.
Families needing referrals to child care programs that are open and operating for children ages birth to twelve should call the statewide toll–free number listed below for assistance:
(Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.)
Please note: Effective April 1st, the only licensed child care programs that are allowed to operate in North Carolina are those which have agreed to meet additional health, safety, and other requirements specified by the NC Division of Child Development and Early Education (DCDEE) and have been specifically authorized by DCDEE to remain open in April and May 2020.

These referrals are not recommendations. As a parent or guardian, it is your responsibility to select the child care provider you believe will be best for your children.
