Mass Partnership for Infants & Toddlers – Survey for Families

We need your help!

The Massachusetts Partnership for Infants and Toddlers (MPIT) is a new statewide early childhood collaboration, and we are helping the state write a plan for programs and services for young children.  We need your advice and ideas.  We would like to know what is most useful and helpful for families. If you work directly with families, you are welcome to take the survey with them. We plan to keep the survey live through December 31. If you are interested in conducting outreach in another language, please contact me to discuss options.

The survey will take up to 15 minutes to complete.  You may skip or not answer questions.  It is voluntary and answers will be kept confidential.  After the survey period is complete, three (3) respondents will be chosen at random to win a $100 gift card of their choice.

Below are links and QR codes for our Family Survey, in both English and Spanish. Please share with your networks and encourage families to take the survey.

I liked it so much I wanted to set up a day-care in the lobby. As I said, best show in town.” —Chicago Tribune

sweet and heartbreaking and laugh-out-loud funny” —DiscoverHollywood

Cooped up on maternity leave and eager for conversation, Jessie invites the funny and forthright Lina for coffee in their neighboring backyards. They become fast friends, quickly bonding over their shared “new mom” experience—and arousing the interest of a wealthy neighbor hoping for a similar connection. This insightful comedy with dark edges takes an honest look at the absurdities of new motherhood, the dilemma of returning to work versus staying at home, and how class impacts parenthood and friendship in America.

Performances are followed by a reception with the actors in the Gallery.

General Admission- $30, Seniors- $25, Students- $15
