✓ Live in Georgia?
✓ Have young children (under age 13)?
If so, do you:
✓ Have thoughts about quality in early care and education settings AND/OR do you need or use nonparental care for your child on the weekends, in the morning before 6 am or in the evenings after 7 pm?
If you answered yes to the questions above, we’d love to talk to you!
• Researchers at Urban Institute, a non-profit research organization, are seeking parents who live in Georgia who will volunteer to talk on the phone or participate in a video conference to hear your thoughts about quality in child care and early education.
• We are especially interested in the types of care you want if you need care late at night, early in the morning, or on the weekends.
• The information you share will be used to inform the comprehensive review of Quality Rated, Georgia’s Quality Rating and Improvement System.
• Parents who are eligible to participate and who do the interview or video conference will receive an electronic gift card of $50 to thank them for their participation in the call.
