CA R&R Network Website Testing
A gift certificate of thanks for your help testing CA R&R website

The CA Child Care Resource & Referral Network is working on building MyChildCarePlan.org , a child care consumer education website. Families will be able to use this platform to find child care and related resources, and providers will use it to update their profile to attract clients and find resources about licensing, health and safety, and more.

The R&R Network wants input from child care providers as they build the site. They will be running one-hour user testing sessions this  Wednesday, June 12 , at their office at 1182 Market Street, Suite 300, San Francisco, CA 94102. This round of testing will be conducted in English. They are offering a $50 Visa gift card to each provider that attends. 

To participate, see their survey directly below.
BUILD Survey
Quality Counts California Systems Building Project Workforce Survey

As part of the work related to the Preschool Development Grant, the California Department of Education has asked the BUILD Initiative to provide observations, insights, and recommendations on steps that could be taken to ensure that California’s quality system infrastructure is as effective and efficient as possible. BUILD’s specific focus is on local, regional, and state roles, responsibilities, and system organization. We will compile all the responses to share with the California Department of Education. It is critical to hear how the California quality system is working for the early childhood workforce.

Your answers are confidential and we very much appreciate your honest feedback!
