About the survey
The purpose of the survey was to learn more about nutrition and physical activity for children ages 2-5 in licensed child care programs.
Child care providers in all parts of Washington completed the survey and provided important information about nutrition and physical activity for young children in our state.
The University of Washington Center for Public Health Nutrition conducted the survey in the fall of 2013 with support from the YMCA, Child Care Aware of Washington, the Department of Health, the Department of Early Learning, the Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction, local health departments, and others.
Two surveys were developed — one for center directors and one for family home child care owners/providers. The surveys were available in two formats, an online survey and a paper survey. All survey tools and related materials were offered in both English and Spanish.
