FFN Provider Survey 2020

We need your voice!

Mile High United Way, in partnership with Early Milestones Colorado and The University of Denver’s Butler Institute for Families, is conducting a survey to better understand a specific type of childcare called Family, Friend, and Neighbor (FFN) care. FFN care is home-based care – in the caregiver’s 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.

If you are a relative, neighbor, family friend, nanny or babysitter that provides regular childcare, this survey is for you.

This 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.

By completing this survey, you can choose to be entered into a raffle for a $100 gift card; we will be selecting at least 75 people who complete the survey to receive a gift card.

The survey has been translated into multiple languages.

Please make a difference by completing this survey!

If you have any questions, please contact Phillip Chung, PhD, at

Thank you!

Storybox Project

         Storybox Special Home Delivery

       …bringing early literacy tools to your doorstep!

the Alamosa Public Library’s Storybox Special Delivery!  This program is designed to assist in-home, licensed childcare providers. Each of the 21 different Storyboxes contains picture book and board book titles that are specially selected to enhance storytimes and early literacy activities helping caregivers provide literacy-rich experiences to the children in their care.  Additionally, each box has two or three “teacher titles” that will help with business management and growth, as well as titles that will nurture the caregiver’s early literacy, teaching, and child development knowledge.
