Child care shortages weigh heavily on parents and providers

Share
Description:

In previous fact sheets, we described challenges that child care workers are facing during the pandemic, such as difficulty paying for basic needs, food insecurity, and unstable work schedules. These challenges are associated with pronounced emotional distress among child care providers and may be contributing to some providers leaving the field and to severe child care shortages during the COVID-19 pandemic. In this fact sheet, we look at child care staffing issues from both parents’ and child care providers’ perspectives. (author abstract)
