We provide quality professional development opportunities through our training and technical assistance services to improve program quality and increase teacher competency.

Child Care Aware of NH offers:
Resources and Information Sharing
The website offers a variety of guides, tools and resources to assist providers in offering high quality care. We also offer a Lending Library that can be accessed by providers looking for resources, books and videos to support their needs as an early childhood educator. Referrals to community supports and resources can be provided to providers seeking assistance with their work caring and educating NH’s children and families.
CCAoNH also shares important early childhood information through our E-Newsletters and social media accounts. Child Care Aware of New Hampshire has an E-Newsletter that is distributed bi-monthly to keep early childhood providers aware of what’s happening statewide and nationally on child care.
In addition, we maintain two Facebook pages, one for families and the other for providers. For our providers, we also have four closed Facebook groups to share and relay information specific to certain groups in the early childhood field.
