Urban Institute tool for estimating state-level demand for child care outside traditional hours

Even before the pandemic, parents working nontraditional-hour (NTH) work schedules faced major child care constraints. NTH schedules include working before 7:00 a.m. or after 6:00 p.m. during the week or working anytime on weekends – often outside the schedule that child care centers and providers are open. The Urban Institute has compiled this data at a state level for policymakers and advocates to use. #racialequity #childcare
