Rhode Island Early Learning Facility Needs Assessment

The Rhode Island Department of Education, in partnership with the Department of Human Services, has contracted with the LISC Child Care Facilities Fund to conduct an Early Learning Facility Needs Assessment as part of its Race to the Top Early Learning Challenge efforts. We know you care about ensuring that adequate financial and technical resources are dedicated to helping early learning centers meet the many challenges programs are facing today. We know that facilities are creating barriers to programs moving up the quality ladder and in some cases even to maintaining its current child care license. We are asking for your help as we work to gather honest and detailed data that paints an accurate and complete picture of the facility challenges facing programs across the state. If you are an early childhood center director, owner, or administrator please take our survey today.
