The purpose of the survey is to understand the extent to which a group of users of childcare services understand key Start Smart messages about child development. A major part of the Start Smart initiative focuses on informing parents and caregivers about appropriate childcare practices and providing accurate child development information. Start Smart planners are interested in evaluating the success of various efforts to disseminate such information. The survey provides a snapshot of the perceptions of a relatively large group of childcare users in two of the targeted areas for the Start Smart initiative. This snapshot represents a "before" intervention picture. While some Start Smart materials are available to residents of Franklin County (web site, pamphlets, etc.), to date, no targeted dissemination of information in the test neighborhoods has taken place.
