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.
