This project is funded by a subcontract from the Nebraska Children & Families Foundation.

As part of the Nebraska Preschool Development Grant, this project aims to develop a statewide brochure for families residing in Nebraska in understanding and identifying quality child care for both young children and for those attending after school programs.

The brochure will provide a resource for families to provide information about early care and education for children, the importance of quality care and how to locate quality care based on the needs of their child and family.

Researchers will lead focus groups with key stakeholders and lead the development of the brochure.
