City of Seattle family child care study: Landscape analysis

To advance its FCC strategy, DEEL selected the Seattle-based Dovetailing Consulting (with Kaizen Clara serving as subcontractor) to serve as the study team to gather quantitative and qualitative data to respond to a set of research questions (See Appendix B - Initial Evaluation Questions and Observations) such as: 1. What are the characteristics of the family child care community in Seattle as they relate to race, ethnicity, geographic distribution and licensed capacity? 2. What challenges are family child care providers currently facing in sustaining their business and enhancing quality of their program and teaching? 3. What challenges are family child care providers experiencing in how the City, County, and State interact with their business? To respond to the research questions, the study team, with guidance from DEEL and the FCCAC: - Analyzed demographic data about family child care in Seattle. - Developed an overview of the City's past and current family child care initiatives. - Gathered the insights of family child care providers and community partners regarding issues, barriers, trends and beneficial strategies.
