Child Care Provider Experiences

Identifying Barriers and Opportunities for Child Care Providers

Nearly 400 providers responded to a statewide survey of experiences throughout the pre-licensing, licensing, and post-licensing processes. Many of these respondents also participated in a series of interviews and a co-creation session to further explore the bright spots and challenges of being a licensed child care provider.

The findings give us a glimpse into the diverse experiences of child care providers throughout our state. We invite you to explore the report below, prepared by the University of Kansas Center for Public Partnerships and Research and Orange Sparkle Ball, and consider how you can integrate provider voice into your work. To learn more about this project, view the June 2 biweekly webinar recording and slides.
