New Jersey Child Care Subsidy Program
Market Rate Survey for Child Care Centers 

The New Jersey Department of Human Services, Division of Family Development (DHS/DFD) is required by federal law to conduct a Child Care Market Rate Survey for 2021.   

The data collected by this survey will provide valuable information related to child care market prices, expenses associated with the implementation of health, safety, and staffing requirements, and the cost of higher-quality care.  This survey has been sent to all licensed child care centers from a DFD email address. If you are child care center operating in New Jersey and you did not receive the email, you can access the survey here Opens in new window

Your participation in this survey is critical for the State of New Jersey to help inform policy recommendations for setting provider payment rates for the Child Care Subsidy Program.
