Looking to meet with other working mothers? Once a month, the Working Moms meet for a casual lunch discussion. Vent, share ideas, ask advice, or just socialize—anything related to a working mother is up for discussion! Pregnancy experiences, child care options, feeding choices, potty training—the Working Moms are ready to talk and to help. Mothers in the group may be expectant, have an infant, balancing work demands with kids' school programs and activities, or preparing for the empty nest---everyone is welcome!

Providing a warm, stimulating, safe daytime childcare environment for the children of Dartmouth personnel is the mission of the Dartmouth College Child Care Center.
Any child can be admitted to an age-appropriate group if a parent/guardian is employed by Dartmouth College and eligible for employee benefits. Within each group, enrollment is first-come, first-served. Enrollment can be for two full days weekly or for more. The DHMC's Child Care Center also has 19 spaces available. Fees and enrollment policies are the same for both centers.
The Family Handbook from Dartmouth College Child Care Center details what you need to know to work with your child.
|Baby Brain stores unlimited data about your baby's (or babies'!) activities. Keep track of feeding times, sleeping patterns, diaper changes, medicine schedules and more.|
|iBear Baby lets you store photos, track weight and growth, record trips to the doctor and medical advice, and document "first-time events" such as rolling over, crawling, and walking. You can even record baby talk with the newest feature!|
|Baby Pack & Go provides a travel checklist for parents and caregivers on the go. It's easy to add in any item (terrycloth bunny, favorite bedtime book) not already in the extensive catalogue.|
|Babyphone lets you know when baby wakes up. At a higher sensitivity setting, the app calls your preset phone number if baby even rolls over.|
|MagicSleep recreates the sounds your baby heard when still inside the womb. The soothing, familiar rhythms not only help baby—and you!—fall asleep more quickly, but also promises to deepen sleep.|
