EXTENSION!!! Maine Child Care Market Rate Survey
The Office of Child and Family Services (OCFS) has extended the due date for the 2021 Child Care Market Rate Survey to January 29, 2021. The market rate survey is critical in providing a thorough and transparent accounting of child care providers’ costs so every provider’s participation is important.
The survey is available for download at: https://www.burnshealthpolicy.com/maine_2021childcaremrs/. Questions about the survey can be directed to Burns & Associates at OCFSChildCareMRS@healthmanagement.com, or by calling (602) 241-8523.
We greatly appreciate the support of those providers that have already completed the survey, and are hopeful this extension will provide a sufficient time for all other providers to participate.
