Wilder Research is conducting a survey of family child care associations in Minnesota for the Minnesota Department of Human Services. The purposes of the survey are to describe:
- The number, size, scope and make-up of formal and informal associations of family child care providers
- The level and types of activities, training and professional development services offered
- Perceptions and attitudes about training requirements, the Minnesota Professional Development System, Child Care Resource and Referral training, and the Parent Aware quality rating system and ideas for how they can best serve family child care providers
- Other information useful to family child care association stakeholders for planning and decision making
Identified family child care associations will be contacted via mail or email in March, and phone interviews will be conducted in March and April, with preliminary results in June and a final report in August.
For further information about the study and interview process, please contact Jennifer Valorose at Wilder Research (firstname.lastname@example.org, 651-280-2654), or Karen Gaides at the Department of Human Services (email@example.com).
