Dear employer,

Child care continues to be identified as an important need in the Grinnell area. To better understand the need so that potential solutions can be identified, the Grinnell Area Chamber of Commerce is partnering with Early Childhood Iowa - Jasper, Marion, Poweshiek (JMP), along with assistance from First Children’s Finance (FCF), to conduct a child care study and we need your help!
A part of the study is conducting this survey to gain feedback from employers to hear how child care may be affecting them and their employees. This survey takes 10-15 minutes to complete and will be available through November 11, 2022.

Please complete only one survey per company.

If you are also a parent, please complete the parent survey at:

Confidentiality: All survey results are collected and analyzed by First Children’s Finance (FCF), acting as an independent third party. Individual responses are kept confidential and will not be shared with anyone outside FCF personnel. When results are reported, they will be aggregated (individual results combined and reported as a group). Comments submitted may be reported individually and will be used verbatim as long as an individual respondent, local employer, or child care program cannot be identified, in which case they may be partially reported or edited to remove the identifying information.
