Together with Support for Early Learning & Families (SELF), we'd like to hear from local organizations about child care!

How do child care issues affect you and what kind of supports would be the most helpful in addressing these issues? This  Clark County Business Child Care Survey  should be filled out by the head of your Human Resources department, or someone on your leadership team. More than one person can fill out the survey – this can often provide a broader perspective than one person.
