Family Child Care Provider Survey

University of Maine at Farmington Professors, Dr. Williams & Dr. Karno need Family Child Care Provider feedback!

They have reached out to FCCAM to help distribute a survey for their research. They have given us the following description to pass along to you:

Child care is vitally important to restarting the economy. The COVID-19 pandemic has greatly changed the face of family child care in the state of Maine. The goal of this research project is to learn more about the challenges family child care owners and providers have experienced during the COVID-19 pandemic and their needs for support. If you are part of the family child care community, we want to hear from you.  Please take 15 minutes to complete our survey so we can better understand how to support family child care providers in state and nationally. “
