Are you a relative, neighbor, family friend, nanny or babysitter that provides regular childcare? If so, please complete this survey to help Mile High United Way, in partnership with Early Milestones Colorado and The University of Denver’s Butler Institute for Families, better understand a specific type of childcare called Family, Friend, and Neighbor (FFN) care.  

FFN care is home-based care – in the caregiver or child’s home – provided by caregivers who are relatives (e.g., grandparents, aunts and uncles, elders, or older siblings), friends, neighbors, babysitters, or nannies. This type of childcare takes place outside of a licensed center, program, or family childcare (FCC) home. 

The survey should take approximately 20 minutes to complete. Your responses will be anonymous. No individual results will be reported, and all data will be grouped together for analyses. You can also choose to be entered into a raffle for a $100 gift card; 75 people who complete the survey will be selected receive a gift card! 

People with varying linguistic backgrounds are invited to share their perspectives – the survey has been translated into multiple languages:
