Investing in Children From The Start

At Merrimack Valley Day Care Service, we believe all children deserve a positive early education experience. For over 50 years, our centers have served children from across Concord and Boscawen, NH. Each of our centers provides play-based developmentally appropriate curriculums.

Providing Children With the Healthy Start They Deserve

Our staff is experienced, kind, and caring. Most of our team members have an Early Childhood Professional Teaching Credential. Merrimack Valley Day Care Service is an equal opportunity provider. In addition, we are a designated Licensed Plus Facility by the state of New Hampshire and are a United Way partner agency. 

Serving 250+ Children Annually

Our organization started in a church basement in 1967 when a few Concord mothers wanted to work outside their homes but did not have care for their children. Throughout the past 50+ years, we have grown to five centers. We care for 250 children annually ranging from age six weeks of age to 12 years old.

Why Is Affordable Childcare Important?

High-quality childcare not only benefits children — it is beneficial to the entire family. When parents have peace of mind that their children are cared for, it helps them better focus on achieving their educational or career goals, therefore improving the quality of life for everyone in the household.

Encouraging Healthy Habits & Reducing Food Insecurity

In addition to providing children with opportunities to make new friends, learn, and grow, we also provide healthy meals and snacks throughout the day. Through our sponsorship of the USDA Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP), we help over 50 childcare providers in the greater Concord area provide healthy food to the children in their care.
