BBF Releases Results of 2022 Early Childhood Family Needs Assessment Survey

More than 600 people across all regions of Vermont took the Early Childhood Family Needs Assessment from mid-August to mid-October 2022 that was supported by Building Bright Futures (BBF) State Advisory Council Network and the Vermont Integration Prenatal to 3 grant. The survey asked about families’ experiences with accessing a variety of services, including child care, early intervention services, healthy food, pediatric care, and transitions between settings and services.

Overall, respondents reported having positive experiences with the services and supports they were asked about. Survey participants suggested that several factors made their experiences either easier or more challenging. Helpful factors included relationships with staff and providers, communication, timeliness of services, and nearby location of services. Frequently mentioned barriers included difficulty accessing a service or support due to availability or cost, and difficulty navigating the complex early childhood system.
