Evaluation - The Marin Child Care Outcomes Project
The Marin Child Care Outcomes Project (Marin Community Foundation) supported six agencies providing child care to low income residents in Marin County, California, and one agency providing child care subsidies. Philliber worked with the grantees to develop a common process and outcome evaluation system. Seven dimensions of family functioning grouped into three domains were assessed at enrollment and again at annual intervals. Four dimensions of child development were also assessed at the same time. Changes in assessment were tracked to document improvements. Philliber also developed and piloted a tool for centers to self-assess the quality of their family support services.
