Reflections on Capital Quality during the COVID-19 pandemic: Insights from child care providers in the District of Columbia


To learn about child care providers’ experiences with Capital Quality and their perceptions of the pandemic’s impact on their quality-improvement efforts, Urban Institute researchers interviewed 36 child care providers. The interviews occurred during the early months of the pandemic in 2020, when some facilities were temporarily closed and others continued serving families or were starting to reopen. Child care providers shared perspectives about how the pandemic affected Capital Quality activities and the challenges the pandemic presented. They also shared recommendations for maintaining some adaptations and flexibilities allowed because of the pandemic and suggested other supports to help rebuild the workforce. (author abstract)
