Illinois Action for Children, in collaboration with Community Based Planning – Effingham County, encourages everyone who uses childcare in our region to respond to a short survey.

With just 15 questions, the survey asks parents or guardians about their experiences in finding childcare in Effingham County.

Samantha Weidner, Effingham County Health Department-Effingham County Connections 0-3 Program explained: "Your voice matters. We hear of stories in the community around limited childcare but in order to get real action, we need data. We need you to fill out this survey, so collectively our voices can be heard and understood. We won't ask for your name. No matter your childcare situation, please fill out this survey. There is power in numbers. Help Effingham understand what is needed.".

“Finding childcare across the county has been difficult for a while now, without knowing what our community needs there’s no way for us address this ongoing crisis. We are also focused on learning about our childcare workforce, and hope that these survey results can help guide providers when making decisions for the future of their businesses.” Kellie Niemerg, Director, Effingham Education Center added.

The survey is available in English and Spanish.
