There are 4 age categories for NH Child Care Scholarship:
• Infants: birth to 17 months;
• Toddlers: 18 months to 35 months;
• Pre-School and Kindergarten: 36 months to 78 months (6 ½ years); and
• School age: 79 months to 155 months (up to the day before the child’s 13th birthday).
Exception: Children age 13 or over but under age 18 are eligible if the child’s physical or mental condition is such that the child would cause harm to him/herself or to others without supervision. See PART 941 for additional information regarding disability payments.
The payment rate automatically changes the Monday following the child's change in age category.
