The Manchester Board of Zoning Appeals granted permission Monday for two Manchester families to operate home day care centers, said Miriam DePalmer, the town's assistant zoning administrator.
Steve and Kathy Sheppard, of 2814 Bachman Road, were granted approval to care for up to eight children.
Janet and Jim Young, of 3305 Augusta Road, were given approval to care for up to five children.
Ms. DePalmer said the centers will be subject to the usual licensing procedures and will have to file copies of required paperwork with the town.
The approvals are non-transferable, she said.
