Measuring the impact of COVID-19 on Colorado’s early care and learning sector
In the summer of 2020, Early Milestones developed three coordinated surveys in conjunction with multiple partners in Colorado’s ECE sector. Our goal was to estimate the impact of COVID-19 throughout the state. These three surveys focused on the quantitative and qualitative experiences of: - Licensed child care programs serving children birth through age 12 - Early educators and child care professionals - Families with children birth through age 12. The family survey was developed in partnership with the Butler Institute for Families at the University of Denver (Butler Institute). Information regarding survey administration and partnership is detailed below. Additionally, we worked closely with Mile High United Way and the Butler Institute to design a fourth survey of family, friend, and neighbor (FFN) providers that was administered in early fall of 2020. The primary focus of this report is the three main surveys listed above, with select additional information incorporated from the FFN survey results. (author abstract)
