The state of child care for babies: The need to do better for our youngest children


This brief draws on data reported in the 2020 Yearbook to highlight how a lack of public investment in child care leads to high costs for families. The first section of the report focuses on data related to children’s access to child care and state policies impacting the quality of care available. The second section highlights specific state strategies working to enhance children’s access to quality child care, while the third provides recommendations to federal policymakers to do the same.
