About the Survey
Reinvestment Fund, the City of Philadelphia’s Office of Children and Families, Public Health Management Corporation (PHMC) and United Way, are working together to help local and state policymakers understand childcare needs and begin to organize resources as pandemic-related restrictions ease.
Results from the PHL Childcare Reopen Survey for Families will help guide childcare providers to try and offer modified services that meet the needs of the communities they serve. The online survey gathers information from parents and guardians of young children who were using childcare in Philadelphia when the pandemic began or who are interested in using it in the coming months. Responses to the online survey will help us understand how childcare providers and the City of Philadelphia can help families access childcare as people begin to go back to work and school.
