Did you know that new parents often wait too long before considering child care arrangements for when they return to work?
We are studying how parents make plans for child care to help develop strategies for helping families find child care arrangements. We are surveying parents across Canada who are now expecting a baby or are on paid or unpaid maternity/parental leave.
This survey is being conducted by the Childcare Resource and Research Unit (CRRU), an early childhood education and child care (ECEC) policy research institute based in Toronto, Ontario.
This online survey should take no longer than 15 minutes. We would very much appreciate your filling it out as soon as you can. Any information you provide will be completely anonymous; you cannot be identified in any way. It will be used only as group (aggregate) information and only for this project.
If you have friends or family who are currently expecting or are on maternity/parental leave, we would appreciate your sending the survey on to them as well.
We expect this research to lead to better understanding about how parents arrange child care. The results of the survey will be published later in 2017 in a report that will be publicly available on our website.
