CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — The Boys & Girls Clubs of Central New Hampshire and Lakes Region Child Care Services are exploring a merger to strengthen and expand child care and afterschool services.

The combined organization would offer comprehensive care and services for children from infancy to age 18.

The Boys & Girls Clubs operates four early childhood centers and 12 before and after school programs across the Lakes Region and central part of the state. The Lake Region Child Care Services operates four child care centers for infants, toddlers, and preschoolers in Laconia and Belmont. It also manages before and after-school programs.

The goal is to complete the merger by Jan. 1, 2020. Both organizations would keep their names.
