The California Child Care Study is being done by Child Trends and its partners, IMPAQ International and Brian Fitzgerald RPE-DVBE, for the California Department of Social Services and the California Department of Education.

The purpose of the study is to learn more about child care paid for by the government, and the families who use it. Information from the study can help the government make choices about child care programs. It can also help the government make services for families better.

The study will include people from across California. It will include local agencies that help families get child care assistance. The study will also include child care programs, and include families whose child care is subsidized by the government.
