Child Care Survey

The Clayton County Foundation for the Future has been awarded a Rural Child Care Planning Grant from the Iowa Economic Development Authority to conduct a market analysis and develop a strategic plan to address child care needs in Clayton County. The Community Foundation of Greater Dubuque in partnership with the Clayton County Foundation for the Future has contracted with First Children’s Finance to perform an in-depth child care market analysis and to develop solutions to Clayton County’s unique child care needs with a strategic plan. Clayton County Foundation for the Future Coordinator Emily Sadewasser will serve as project liaison with a steering committee of stakeholders from across the county. The research being conducted by FCF includes a survey of parents that are currently using child care or want to use child care in Clayton County, to learn about their child care preferences along with child care challenges they may be facing. The survey for parents can be accessed online September 15 through October 15, 2023 through a link to be published on the Clayton County Foundation for the Future Facebook page. In addition, local employers and child care providers will be contacted to participate in surveys to provide insight into the current child care supply and how it is affecting them. Look for more information and the survey link in next week’s issue. If you have questions or would like more information about this project, contact Emily Sadewasser, Foundation Coordinator, Clayton County Foundation for the Future at ccff@dbqfoundation.orgor 563.880.6044.
