National Survey of Early Care and Education

February 2, 2012

The first national survey of child care supply and demand since 1990 is now being conducted on behalf of the Administration for Children and Families of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. 

Data from this survey will improve our knowledge of the use and availability of early care and education in our country and will be used to inform policy. Participants are now being randomly selected in the DFW area and contacted by the National Opinion Research Center (NORC).   All data collected will remain anonymous.   

We urge providers to complete the survey if you are contacted and contribute to this important effort so the results will be accurate and representative of our area

For more information about the survey please view their website

Thank you for your help as we work to strengthen the early childhood community and give the children of DFW a great start in life!
