Welcome!

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 licensed child care and authorized recreation programs purchased by the DNSSAB are responsive, accessible, inclusive, and of high quality. 

The purpose of this survey is to gather feedback pertaining to licensed child care and authorized recreation programs based on the values of responsiveness, accessibility, inclusiveness and high quality. The survey is for parents and caregivers with children enrolled in licensed child care and authorized recreation program in the District of Nipissing, including licensed home-based child care services.  Parents may or may not receive child care fee subsidy from DNSSAB. This survey is being administered by the DNSSAB in partnership with licensed child care and authorized recreation providers in the District of Nipissing. 

Information will be shared with provider(s) on a regular basis based on all answers received (aggregate information).  Providers will only receive information for the programs they operate.  Providers will be able to use this information to improve programs, enhance services, and/or respond to the needs of parents and children. At no time will individual answers that could identify children and/or parents be shared. The information collected from the survey will be summarized and used for planning and evaluation by the DNSSAB, special needs resourcing, early years, child care and authorized recreation partners.

The survey is completely voluntary.  All answers are anonymous.  The survey should take approximately ten minutes to complete.  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 will be kept separate from your answers.  If you wish to receive a copy of this survey in an alternate format, please contact the data coordinator at data@dnssab.ca or by calling 705-474-2151 ext. 3321.
