Designing family-friendly consumer education on child care


Consumer education efforts are undergoing revisions in response to provisions in the Child Care and Development Block Grant (CCDBG) Act of 2014 and the 2016 Child Care and Development Fund (CCDF) final rule. Specifically, each State must maintain a website that contains information about child care providers in the State or local area, results of providers' monitoring and inspection reports (including health and safety violations), and lists of resources for parents, including financial assistance. This brief provides research-based information to support state agency staff as they design and implement these websites and other resources, such as quality rating and improvement systems (QRISs).
