What should I do first?

  • If you need child care during a Families First appointment in Portsmouth (health, dental, or insurance enrollment), ask the receptionist to schedule you for a time when child care is available. Then reserve your child’s spot online or at 603-422-8208 (press 3, then 8).
  • If you need child care during a parenting class or group, sign up for program and child care online or at 603-422-8208 (press 3, then 8).
  • Fill out the Family Center Registration Form (.pdf) now, or when you come to your first program.

Then what?

Come to the program or appointment you signed up for. Arrive a few minutes early to get your kids settled in child care (first door to the right of Families First entrance).
