Development of a Research Plan to Measure the Effects of a Family, Friend, and Neighbor Training Policy on Child Outcomes

In line with the goals of the CCDBG Act of 2014 to enhance the quality of child care for low-income children, the Nevada Division of Welfare and Supportive Services Child Care and Development Program enacted a policy on March 1, 2016 to require specific training for Family, Friend, and Neighbor (FFN) providers. The goal of the Phase I planning grant is to develop a rigorous research-based evaluation of the implementation of this new policy that could be carried out during Phase II implementation. By increasing health and safety and early education and child care training for FFN providers through this new policy, it is expected that the quality of care received by children through FFN providers will increase. Therefore, during Phase I, the lead agency will work with stakeholders and researchers to determine how to measure the effects of the new FFN training policy on child outcomes. Through this process it is also expected that the lead agency will outline processes for data collection, analysis and data sharing, expand partnerships, and better utilize data to educate stakeholders and State leaders and inform decision making processes.
