About LINC Educare

The LINC Educare initiative promotes early childhood education through a simple approach: educate and train those who care for our children between zero and three, and up through school age. Educare providers attend workshops on child development, cognition, motor skills, behavior problems, child abuse and neglect. Click on an image below to learn more about LINC Educare opportunities.

2018 Child Care Market Rate Survey

This survey is for all child care providers, and gathers the prices families pay, or market rates, for early childhood care and education services by type of care, ages and populations served, and location. Your participation is very important! The information you provide will help set child care subsidy rates.  

You can complete the survey online or by telephone. We are inviting both licensed and registered child care providers throughout the state to take the survey.

You can take the survey at the following links:

The information you provide is confidential and your participation is voluntary.  Your choice to take part will not affect your ability to provide subsidized child care.  Your name will not be associated with your answers.  Any reports resulting from the survey will not include your name or the name of your business.  If you have any questions, please call PCG at 1-844-735-7373 or email MOMRS2018@pcgus.com.
