South Carolina leaders urge parent to fill out Child Care Survey
The South Carolina Early Childhood Advisory Council (ECAC) and the United Way Association of South Carolina want to hear how the COVID-19 pandemic has impacted families and their ability to get child care for their young children. The Build It Back Better survey will help state leaders learn how South Carolina can improve the systems when the crisis is over. The survey can found at: https://scfirststeps.surveymonkey.com/r/builditbackbetter / or Tinyurl.com/builditbackbetter
“We are caring for the caregivers, the brave and dedicated unsung heroes who have continued to provide child care and early education throughout the pandemic, having never closed their doors,” says Georgia Mjartan, Executive Director of the ECAC and South Carolina First Steps. “And we are working behind the scenes in our state and federally to ensure the web of support South Carolina’s families need, including child care, is there for them, now and in the future.”
The survey takes approximately 10 minutes to complete, and participation is voluntary. Responses will not impact the respondent’s ability to receive services at any time. Answers are confidential and will be combined with other responses for reporting.
Respondents will be entered in a drawing for one of 10 $200 Visa gift cards. To enter, the respondent must provide their email address at the end of the survey when prompted. The survey will close on Sunday, August 9, at 11:59 p.m. Only one survey is allowed per person.
