As part of the Connecting the PIECES KC early learning strategic planning process, MARC Head Start and Early Learning are working with local agencies to collect data from multiple stakeholder groups on access and experiences with child care. There are two surveys – one for parents and one for employers. We invite you to take the survey and provide feedback. Links to each survey are below.

Parents eligible for completing the survey will have one or more children ages 5 and under and live within Clay, Jackson or Platte counties in Missouri and Johnson or Wyandotte counties in Kansas. Kids Win Missouri, funder of the Connecting the PIECES KC work, contracted with IFF to conduct this survey.
