Message from the California Child Care Study Team:

We are writing to announce the launch of data collection for the California Child Care Study in May 2018. This is a state-wide study about subsidized child care and the families who use it. For this study, we will collect data about the local agencies that manage child care subsidies, the families who use that care, and the early care and education providers who serve them. State departments will use these data to inform policies and potential changes to child care services for eligible families. This study is being conducted by Child Trends for the California Department of Social Services and the California Department of Education. You can visit the study website at http://www.childtrends.org/project/california-child-care-study/ for more information.

In January, we offered informational webinars (click here for recording) that provided an overview of the California Child Care Study. Our upcoming webinar will focus on specific details about the local agency, provider, and family data collection processes and what to do if you are contacted to participate in the study. Please feel free to forward this information to people you know who may be interested in joining. You can register for the webinar below.

Webinar Description: This webinar will provide an overview of what to expect from the data collection process for the California Child Care Study. We will cover agency, provider, and family data collection, as well as an updated timeline for the study. This is a state-wide study about subsidized child care, or child care that is paid for in part by the state, and the families who use it. The study is being conducted by Child Trends for the California Department of Social Services and the California Department of Education. For this study, we will collect data about the local agencies that manage child care subsidies, the families who use that care, and the early care and education providers who serve them. State departments will use these data to inform policies and potential changes to child care services for eligible families. There will be an opportunity at the end to address any questions you may have.
