Sweatt Winter Child Care Needs Survey
This survey examines the need for infant, toddler, preschool, and school-age care and education programs for UMF faculty/staff and community members. Sweatt-Winter Child Care Center, on the University of Maine at Farmington campus, has the potential to expand with a move to a new site next year. This survey will enable us to make planning decisions which best meet the needs of children and families in the community. Please feel free to forward this survey to any families you know who may need child care or an early education program in the next year. This information will be used for program planning purposes only. Thank you for taking the time to complete this survey.
