These Fall 2021 survey results, along with previous results in the survey series, indicate providers are in a better place today than they were at the beginning of the year, but have still not recovered to pre-pandemic levels of service for families. Supports, largely in the form of grants, in 2020 slowed dire consequences for providers, and those in 2021 appeared to help providers move toward recovery. While enrollment rates increased and financial losses decreased, providers are not yet restored to pre-pandemic levels, which still leaves too many families without access to quality care for their children. For Louisiana to truly thrive, it must take the steps necessary to ensure all families can access a robust, affordable early care and education system. (author abstract)
