Appendix D. Provider and Key Informant Interview Protocol

This appendix provides the protocol used for the key informant interviews summarized in Chapter Five. Section I of the protocol provides the consent language read to participants. Sections II through IV list the questions, by topic area, that were used to guide the semistructured interviews. Depending on the background of the interviewee, different portions of the protocol were used.


Protocol

I. Consent

The City of Santa Monica and SMMUSD have asked the RAND Corporation to study the system of early child care and out-of-school care in the community. RAND is a nonprofit research organization based in Santa Monica. We are gathering information about the programs available, their cost and funding sources, and their general quality to help the city improve its system of care in terms of funding sustainability, quality, and programs offered.

As part of this study, we are interviewing community members like you involved in earlyand out-of-school care to discuss the system and elicit their thoughts on how it could be improved. These interviews will provide critical information for our work, both in terms of system mapping and for developing recommendations.

We will not attribute your statements directly to you. However, in responding, please consider that people reading our final report may be able to link information you provided to your organization and possibly to you. If there is anything you would like to keep “off the record”, please let us know, and that information will not be included in our report or shared with the city or SMMUSD in any way.

We will not be asking about this, but if you mention an incident of child abuse, we may have to stop the interview and report it to the Principal Investigator of the study, who would then review the information and may have to report it to the proper authorities. If that is the case, we may not be able to keep your information private.

Your participation in this interview is voluntary. You may choose not to participate, decline to answer any question or stop the interview at any time. We anticipate this discussion to last no more than one hour.

Do you have any questions? Do you agree to participate? [optional if no note-taker present: We would also like to record the audio of this session. We would destroy the audio recording as soon as we are able to validate our notes. Do you agree to audio recording of this interview?]

If you have any questions about the study or this interview, please contact [name].
