The Uncompahgre Valley Alliance together with Bright Futures, Montrose County, and the City of Montrose wants to better understand the current and future need for childcare and early childhood education (ECE) in Montrose County. These groups contracted with Root Policy Research to survey families who live and/or work in Montrose County about their childcare preferences and needs. Funding partners for the survey include the City of Montrose, Montrose County, and a grant from the Colorado Trust.
  • Our focus in this survey is on childcare needs in a non-COVID environment, so please consider questions based on what you think your “new normal” or “return to normal” will be when schools and workplaces are back to normal operations (unless a question specifically asks about COVID).
  • Your responses are completely confidential and will only be reported in combination with other responses.
  • Please complete this survey if you have one or more children under the age of 6 or if you are expecting a child in the next 12 months.
  • Your opinions will help drive future decisions regarding childcare in Montrose County.
  • There are no right or wrong answers. It is expected that the survey will take approximately 15 minutes to complete. Please limit responses to one per household.
  • Once you complete the survey you can enter a chance to win a $100 Visa card!

If you have any questions about this survey or to request a survey in another format to meet your needs, please contact Kristin Aaker at Root Policy, 970-880-1415 x 100 or
