CONCORD — The Children's Center of Wolfeboro, providing childcare services to children up to 12 years of age, has continued as an essential service during the pandemic, offering care, support and enrichment activities to local children including those with special needs.

The children’s center recently received a Paycheck Protection Program loan with assistance from Meredith Village Savings Bank. For more information about the Federal Government’s Coronavirus Aid Relief and Economic Security Act, and the PPP loan, administered by the SBA, visit

“The PPP loan has been essential to our ability to support working families that need care,” said Teri Ann Cox, executive director of the children’s center. "Thanks to the loan, we were able to retain all our employees from April to June. We’ve worked hard to hire, train and retain dedicated staff, as their expertise and knowledge of our children and families are invaluable. Help from the team at MVSB has provided a vital safety net to those who need it most, at a time they need it most.”

MVSB has been working to help small business customers secure and process PPP loans. “I could not be prouder of our incredible team for helping so many of our business customers through the PPP process,” said John Swedberg, senior vice president, commercial lending officer at MVSB. “We have been working around the clock, studying and reviewing the latest guidance that is being offered through the CARES act website. Local businesses are the lifeblood of our community, and we will continue to do all we can to help businesses secure what they need for economic relief.”
