Child Care Providers Needed for Focus Group

Children First, formerly known as Public Citizens for Children and Youth (PCCY), and the Children Matter Action Fund (CMAF) are hosting focus groups for child care providers during the month of November as they look to engage families as advocates.


State and federal legislation have a major impact on the child care sector, so Children First and CMAF are working to identify parents who are willing to commit to being child care voters to ensure elected officials always work to improve child care and the child care sector for all Pennsylvanians.

Children First and CMAF are hosting virtual focus groups this month specifically for child care providers to talk about successful ways to connect with parents and motivate them to be a child care voter.

Each group is capped at 15 people, and each participant will receive $50.

The dates are as follows:

  • Tuesday, November 9, from 1 to 1:45 p.m.
  • Wednesday, November 10, from 1 to 1:45 p.m.
  • Thursday, November 11, from 1 to 1:45 p.m.
  • Friday, November 12, from 6 to 6:45 p.m.
  • Monday, November 15, from 6 to 6:45 p.m.

Children Matter Action Fund strategically works in a non-partisan fashion to help lawmakers learn what it takes for Pennsylvania children to succeed and persuade them to support legislative measures. Learn more on the website.
