Examining the role of faith-based child care


Little research exists on the role faith-based child care plays for many families in the United States. As COVID-19 impacted child care’s already fragile system, lessons learned from the faith-based community are a valuable asset to understand how to strengthen the overall child care market and support parent preferences. In support of this report, BPC spoke to a diverse group of faith-based leaders, early care and education providers, and parents to understand the policy opportunities that can be leveraged to support faith-based child care and how faith-based organizations can be engaged to support child care for all families. What we learned will inform future strategies for including faith-based child care in solutions for the nation’s child care system, including parental preferences and diverse child care options that best meet the needs of children.
