The District of Nipissing Social Services Administration Board (DNSSAB), as child care and early years service system manager for the District of Nipissing, is committed to ensuring EarlyON Child and Family Centres are responsive, accessible, inclusive and of high quality. 

The purpose of this survey is to gather feedback pertaining to EarlyON programs based on the values of responsiveness, accessibility, inclusiveness and high quality. The survey is for parents and caregivers who have attended an EarlyON Child and Family Centre within the previous 12 months. The survey is being administered by the DNSSAB in partnership with EarlyON providers for the District of Nipissing. 

Information will be shared with EarlyON providers on a regular basis based on all answers received (combined information).  Providers will only receive information for the programs they operate.  Providers will be able to use this information to improve programs and/or enhance programs and/or respond to the needs of children, parents and caregivers. At no time will individual answers that could identify children and/or parents and/or caregivers be shared. The information collected from all providers will be summarized and used for planning and evaluation by the DNSSAB and EarlyON providers.

The survey is completely voluntary.  All answers are anonymous.  If you wish to have someone contact you regarding any questions or concerns you may have, you may supply your name and contact information at the end of the survey, which is separate from your answers.  If you wish to receive a paper copy of the survey please contact your EarlyON Child and Family Centre staff or .  Completed paper copies may be forwarded to any DNSSAB office or scanned and sent by email to
