The State of Child Care in Windham County Report & Key Findings

We are proud to announce the publication of our community needs assessment – The State of Child Care in Windham County – 2013. This report provides a picture of our regional child care system. Through surveys, personal interviews, community conversations, gathering and synthesizing data from various sources, we were able to create a point-in-time snapshot in a dynamic and ever-changing system of care. We are hopeful that readers will come away with many questions that as a community we can begin to explore. The child care system in Windham County can only be as strong and vibrant as the various individuals and programs that make up that system. This report should be viewed as the beginning of a conversation to further strength and support the families in our community and the optimal growth and development of our children.
