Emergency Daycare Services

Emergency Daycare Services

This information has been provided by our colleagues at the Cape Cod Cooperative Extension. Thank you to Rebecca Westgate for putting the following list together.

Visit the Massachusetts Department of Early Education and Care to see a list of designated emergency daycares that will remain open to care for the children of first responders, health care workers and other essential employees. It will be up to families to apply to a daycare, and up to that daycare to determine who qualifies for a slot, in consultation with the EEC’s regional office.
