We are pleased to announce Penacook Community Center, Inc. has begun employment recall procedures.
The PCC Board of Directors met on Monday April 27th and voted to reopen all childcare programs and the summer camp program on Monday June 8, 2020.

*Creative movements to a favorite song.
*Dance routine to a favorite song.
*Dance ribbons (check Pinterest on how to make your own dance ribbons).
*Karaoke to a favorite song.
*Scavenger hunt relating to Easter.
*Draw a treasure map and hide items or eggs in or around the house.
*Egg balance walk race (balance egg on spoon and walk to designated marker and back. May want to save eggs so anything that would be difficult to balance on a spoon).

Dear PCC Parents and Guardians:
Over the past three weeks we have continued to monitor all of the developments related to the coronavirus (COVID-19) and have stayed in touch with our state officials for guidance. With the recent decision by the Governor to place a stay at home order through May 4, 2020, we have made the difficult decision to remain closed for the safety and well-being of our employees and our families. This is not a decision that was made easily because we recognize the additional burden this adds for many of our families. We anticipate reopening on May 4th unless circumstances beyond our control mandate otherwise.
On behalf of all of our employees, volunteers and Board members, I hope that you and your families stay healthy and safe and stay connected to our PCC family! As always, please feel free to reach out to me at (603) 753-9700.
With Best Wishes,
Rick Jaques – E.D.

In light of the current recommendations to prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus, Penacook Community Center has made the difficult decision to suspend operations effective Wednesday, March 18, 2020 through Friday, April 3, 2020. We plan to reopen on Monday, April 6, 2020. We believe this is in the best interest of our participants, their families, and our community.
Due to the unexpected closure, we will be prorating tuition for this week, based off your child’s attendance. Families that did not utilize care this week will not be responsible for tuition during this closure. Rest assured your child’s spot will not be jeopardized during this time. We want all of our families to return healthy, once given the go ahead! We will keep all families updated as we move forward, through email, Facebook and WMUR.
We sincerely apologize, knowing the hardship some families will have with childcare.
If you know of any Concord or Penacook families that are food insecure during this crisis, they can call the Concord Human Service Dept at 225-8575 to request assistance.
211 NH, which provides free, confidential information and referral services, as well as serving as the State’s primary line for COVID 19 related information and the entry point for the State’s Doorways project.

SENIOR PROGRAM CLOSED until further notice…
Please know that we consider the health and safety of all our participants to be our most important priority. Early information shows that some people are at higher risk of getting very sick from the Coronavirus. This includes older adults and people who have serious chronic medical conditions such as heart disease, diabetes and lung disease.
We are implementing this action along with other Senior Programs across the state in order to reduce the risk of our senior members being exposed to COVID-19.
If you have any questions or concerns about COVID-19 please call the State of NH 2-1-1 Hotline, by dialing 2-1-1
We will post and send notice when the Senior Program plans to re-open. During this time, please reach out to family, friends and neighbors and please do not hesitate to call us if we can be of help to you.

The Penacook Community Center will be open tomorrow for our Childcare and School Age. If your child goes to the Penacook Elementary School or Boscawen Elementary School and is in our After-school program they can come to PCC. All we ask is if your child is feeling sick, keep them home or has a cough, fever and problems breathing, take them to the Dr. Thank you. We will let you all know about steps going forward.
