Families who work nonstandard schedules are inequitably affected by lack of child care. And while occupations requiring nonstandard schedules are projected to see the most employment growth by 2020, child care during these working hours is nonexistent and, often, unlicensed. 

In our 2019 report, It's About Time: Parents Who Work Nonstandard Hours Face Child Care Challenges, we examine findings such as:

  • - How many families are affected by jobs with nonstandard hours and often left without quality child care.
  • - Recommendations for policies and legislation to build a supply of quality, affordable child overnight and weekend child care.
  • - What Child Care Resource and Referral (CCR&R) agencies can do to support families who need extended hours child care and recruit and retain qualified child care nonstandard hours child care programs.
