The NIH Child Care Team understands the demands put upon families in today’s society. We strive to provide resources to support the families within the NIH community. The challenges of parenting, caring for an adult family member, and other family obligations, particularly while managing professional responsibilities, can be overwhelming. These resources are intended to provide a snapshot of programs and services available to the NIH community.
The NIH Parenting Coaches are ready and available to help you navigate the stages of childhood and parenthood. They will offer guidance and answers to your specific questions on physical, social, mental and emotional matters. This service is free to the NIH community and their families. To get connected to our parenting coaches, please call the NIH Resource and Referral Line at: 1-800-777-1720.
