National Survey of Family Child Care Networks
We want to hear from you!
Does your organization offer services targeted to family child care providers and/or family, friend, and neighbor caregivers?
Erikson Institute is conducting a national survey of networks and other staffed programs that provide a menu of on-going supports to home-based child care providers (including family child care and family, friend, and neighbor caregivers). The survey seeks responses from program directors from any of the following organizations:
Child care resource & referral agencies that have programs specifically targeted toward family child care providers and/or family, friend and neighbor caregivers
Family child care networks
Early learning hubs or satellite programs
Family child care systems
Early Head Start and Head Start programs that partner with family child care providers
Unions that offer services to providers
Provider associations with staff who deliver services
Shared service alliances that focus on family child care
The survey asks about the following:
Funding and staffing strategies
Services available for family child care and /or family, friend, and neighbor caregivers
Findings from the survey will be used to inform policy and program initiatives aimed at improving quality of caregiving for the millions of young children in these early care and education settings.
