Dear Child Care Center Director:

Never before has anyone been more interested in the critical role you play in early childhood education. You are in fact the Gatekeeper to Quality in your program. How you define your role, how you spend your time, the challenges you face and the needs you have all impact your ability to transform programs. As a former director, I am well aware of the daily challenges that you must face to ensure that your program can be the best it can be and to focus on continuous program improvement. Knowledge, resources and support are needed to make that happen. My research study is designed with directors in mind. It is important that you LET YOUR VOICE BE HEARD!

 The first phase of this research is to collect data and information on the current status of directors, the climate for change and the supportive infrastructure you might need. Toward that end, I ask for your participation in this important survey.

 As a student at Rutgers University, I am required to follow specific protocols. This survey follows the Rutgers Institutional Review Board policies for research. Please be assured that your responses to this survey are reported anonymously. Only a summary report/findings will be issued by me, and this report will not contain any of your individual responses or directly quoted comments. For details about your rights as a study participant, click the consent form.

Once you have completed the survey, you will have the option of providing your email address to register for a drawing for one of four (4) $100 gift cards. Your email address will be used only for the purpose of the drawing. The drawing for the gift cards will be held two weeks after the close of the survey.

 The survey will be available until midnight on Friday, July 31, 2015.However, I urge you to complete it as quickly as possible.  If you understand the statements in the Consent Form and will consent to participate in the study, click on “I Agree” to begin the survey.
