Can the community enroll or is it just for NHTI?
NHTI faculty, staff, and students have priority on our waiting list, however, 90% of our enrollment comes from Concord and surrounding communities.

What are your hours of operation?
We open at 7:00 am and our last pick-up time is 5:15 pm. Families choose and contract a 9.25-hour day for their child(ren) during that timeframe.

How do I get on your waiting list?
First, schedule a tour by calling (603) 230-4024 or emailing us at Once you have observed our classrooms in action and had your questions answered, you will be offered a waiting list application to submit, if you choose.

How long is your waiting list?
Our waiting lists are age-group-specific so they vary in length from 0 families on the wait list to upwards of 30 families. We typically have an extensive waiting list for infants and toddlers, however, there are times a sudden opening is filled by a family who recently joined the wait list because their child is the age we are looking to fill.

Can my child come part-time?
Infant care is only full-time and toddler care is primarily full-time. There may be part-time spaces in the preschool or the pre-k/ kindergarten classrooms.

Do you follow the college calendar?
No – we are open year ‘round, including school vacations. We are closed for scheduled holidays and two additional training days.  Additionally, as a department of NHTI, any delays or closures due to weather, power outage or other emergencies must also be followed.

Do you provide lunch?
Families provide their child’s lunch and we provide two healthy snacks per day, including water and milk for a small, required fee.

Can my child be “bumped” out?
Never! Once a family has enrolled at the CFDC they actually have priority for a second space or a preferred schedule.

What is your discipline policy?
We practice and teach Positive Behavior Preventions and Guidance strategies. These include preventative measures such as well-supervised classrooms, attention to the environment and materials, setting clear and consistent boundaries, using logical and natural consequences, and encouraging and building respectful and reciprocal relationships within our community of learners.
