Northumberland County is inviting parents, caregivers and those planning a family to provide input about their child-care needs and experiences through an online survey.

Data collected from the survey will help shape the county’s development of future Early Years business plans and long-term strategies, Northumberland County said. These plans guide the vision, goals, and service delivery model for child care and early years services throughout Northumberland.

“Recently, Northumberland County has seen a significant rise in the demand for local child-care services,” said Lesley Patterson, the county’s Early Years services manager.

“As we continue to refine our child-care programs and plan for future services, we are seeking feedback from local families to make sure our resources are directed to areas of greatest need. This valuable feedback will help shape the future of local child care and early years programming to ensure it continues to meet the evolving needs of parents and caregivers, now and into the future.”

The online survey takes about 10 minutes to complete. Those who finish the survey by Feb. 28 will be entered to win one of two gift cards to Chapters/Indigo or Winners.
