Hello! My name is Julie Yen, and I am a PhD student in Organizational Behavior at Harvard University. I am conducting research on child care and am seeking interview participants for my study. If you work in a child care center, I would love to interview you and to hear about your experiences in the field.

Interviews typically last about an hour and are confidential. We can connect over phone or Zoom at a time that is convenient for you. I am happy to talk with you more about my project and answer any questions you may have before agreeing to an interview, and I would be very grateful for your participation.

Here is my bio: https://sociology.fas.harvard.edu/people/julie-yen

If you are interested in participating, you can contact me directly at jyen@hbs.edu , or you can follow the link below to provide your contact information and I will reach out to you: https://hbs.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_0iY2RkwVHjCTqAZ
Thank you!

I wanted to clarify. Are you only interested in providers who work in childcare centers or are you also interested in providers who run their own family childcare homes?

Thank you, Michael and mods for your help! At this time I am looking for providers who work in childcare centers. It is possible that the study will expand to family childcare homes in the future.

Do you want people currently working in centers or just with center experience? Before I opened my home daycare 15 years ago I worked in various centers for over a decade.

Yes she did. I actually just got done with the zoom interview. It was really informal and conversational. So if anyoneís considering it itís an easy thing to do.

Yes, thank you, Dave! It was great talking to you.

For others who may be interested, I am looking for people with current or former experience working in centers. Please email me (jyen@hbs.edu) or fill out the form below if you'd be willing to do an interview or just have questions you'd like to ask first! Looking forward to hearing your stories.
