#GaNeedsChildCare Story Bank - Families

Your stories as a family with a young child are critical to increasing investment in our child care system. We’ll share your experiences-both positive and negative-with changemakers and stakeholders to strengthen our advocacy efforts as we work to improve outcomes for young children and families in our state.

This platform makes it easy for you to record your story via video or audio (your choice). The platform will ask you four quick questions that you will respond to separately. The questions are:

1) Please introduce yourself, including (if you feel comfortable) what city you live in, the ages of your child(ren), and whether they attend child care.
2) What do you appreciate most about your child’s teacher or early learning provider?
3) What challenges has your family experienced affording and finding child care?
4) If your child receives or has previously received a CAPS scholarship, what impact has it had on you and your child? If you do not receive CAPS, you can simply respond with N/A.

You respond by recording short (max 2-3 minutes per question) video or audio clips directly from this device. This will take about 20 minutes to complete. You can't skip any questions but feel free to keep it short! You can share as much or as little as they wish. If you don't like your response, you can re-record as many times as you would like. After clicking "submit," you'll be taken to a separate page to complete a consent form.

*The $10 Amazon gift card will be sent via the email you provide at the end of the form within a week of your submission. Limit one gift card per person after validation of completion at our discretion.
