State of Maine Child Care 2020-2021 / One Year in a Pandemic

Public Policy Committee ~~

The Maine Association for the Education of Young Children (MaineAEYC), Family Child Care Association of Maine (FCCAM), Maine Head Start Directors Association (MHSDA), and YMCA Alliance of Maine conducted a child care survey this spring. It was sent by email to all licensed child care programs in Maine in April 2021.

FCCAM would like to thank all programs that completed the survey. The information you shared was impressive and has moved the discussion forward.

The Public Policy Committee would like to thank MaineAEYC for generating the final report from all the data collected. We encourage providers to take the time to read the report and look at the survey data.


The results of the survey highlight why the significant amount of federal funding coming to Maine this year is so important for the recovery and stability of the child care sector.


FCCAM works to unify, promote and strengthen quality professional family child care in Maine. We understand the critical role of child care providers in the lives of children and families. Through collaboration with other organizations we work to increase awareness of our profession and the value of a strong child care system to Maine's diverse communities.
