Child Development Data Reporting


Overview

California must report information to the federal government on subsidized child care and development programs to receive federal matching grant funds and to comply with state and federally mandated reporting requirements. The California Department of Education, Early Education and Support Division (CDE/EESD) has developed the CDD-801A and CDD-801B information collection reports for this purpose. The information collected from these reports will be used by state and federal legislators to develop public policy for child care and development services in California and to request increased funds to expand child care availability in unserved and underserved areas.

CDD-801A, Monthly Child Care Population Information

The CDD-801A is the collection in which all agencies report specific information on all families receiving subsidized child care and development services.

CDD-801B, Monthly Sample Report

The CDD-801B is a monthly collection limited to about 250 families randomly sampled from all CDD-801A statewide submittals for a given month. The families in the sample are selected to provide a more thorough description of the families being served from all CDD-801As submitted statewide.
