Support is just a call away

Our Warm Line is a free, confidential and anonymous telephone guidance service for parents and child care providers.

Call us at 607-273-0259.

Being a parent or caregiver is challenging. Remote work and isolation can push us to our limits. Child Development Council staff is here to listen and help you find solutions to questions about child development, behavior, how to positively discipline your child, how to support their adjustment to childcare (or being at home all the time). We’re here to help you remember to take care of yourself, and to support you in being the best caregiver you can be.

The Council is open from 9:00 a.m. until 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday.  If we are not available to take your call, or if you call after hours, leave a message with your phone number and we will get back to you by the next business day.
