Please spread the word: The Massachusetts Partnership for Infants and Toddlers (MPIT) is releasing its family survey.

The partnership wants to hear from families about what they need and want to support their infants, toddlers, and preschool-age children.

As we’ve blogged, the partnership is a collaboration of organizations, facilitated by Strategies for Children, and we hope the family survey will “improve infants’ and toddlers’ access to high-quality programs and services and create more positive experiences that meet families’ needs and expectations.”

The English version of the survey is here.

And the Spanish version is posted here.

Please share the survey links, or, post a flyer about the survey in a location in your program where families will see it. They can scan the QR code with their smart phone to go directly to the survey.

The survey was created in collaboration with many of MPIT’s partners, including several state agencies: the Executive Office of Education, the Department of Public Health, and the Department of Early Education and Care (EEC).

The survey aligns with the outreach that EEC is doing to solicit feedback from a wide range of stakeholders, including families.

The MPIT survey is only for families. The survey will take up to 15 minutes to complete. And families can skip questions they do not want to answer.

Participation is voluntary; and all answers will be kept confidential.

After the survey closes on December 31, 2019, three respondents will be chosen at random to win a $100 gift card.

MPIT is also working with family engagement specialists from across the state to engage families in forums and focus groups.

For more information about the survey, the forums, or to reach families who speak languages other than English and Spanish, contact Strategies’ director of research and policy, Titus DosRemedios, at (617) 330-7387 or

And please tell families about this opportunity to share what they think so they can help Massachusetts become a state with rich opportunities for our youngest children.
