Child care lets families work, and helps kids learn.  Contra Costa County currently has a shortage of nearly 30,000 child care spaces and the demand is growing. One of the greatest challenges to meeting the demand is finding affordable site locations. 

We have hired an independent research firm, Brion Economics, to assist us in studying this acute facilities shortage.  A publicly available report will summarize survey responses and other relevant research.  The report will identify types of properties by city as potential facility locations.  Specific properties will not be mentioned in the report, but be used internally for staff follow-up.  At the end of the survey, we will ask permission to acknowledge you and/or your agency for your assistance in the study.  

If you have any questions regarding this survey, you may contact Cesca Wright at 530.220.4049 or

Thank you for all you do to make Contra Costa County a great place to live and work.
