Georgia's child care resource and referral system: Evaluation report
The National Implementation Research Network and Frank Porter Graham Child Development Institute engaged in an exploratory evaluation of Georgia's Child Care Resource and Referral (CCR&R) network between September 2012 and April 2013. An exploratory evaluation provides background information and useful feedback to aid in decision-making and action planning for next steps related to research, practice and policy. The purpose of the CCR&R evaluation was to deepen the understanding of the "system as is" in terms of how the CCR&Rs support quality improvement across the state, and to identify potential areas for improvement that would help to realize a more effective "system to be." Findings are meant to generate potential next steps and stimulate thinking about realizing a "system to be" that will successfully prepare and support the CCR&S in promoting quality improvement. An exploratory evaluation is not an effectiveness study. Rather, data are used to strengthen the current system and provide a foundation for a future effectiveness study. (author abstract)
