Searching for child care in the wake of the pandemic: Experiences of parents in the District of Columbia


In spring 2022, we surveyed 137 DC residents who had newly enrolled a child in a licensed DC child care program. These parents shared their experiences searching for care and making child care decisions in the wake of the pandemic. We held focus groups with a subsample of 39 parents in fall 2022 to probe on specific survey findings around the difficulty of the search process. In this fact sheet, we present findings from both the survey and focus groups with parents. (author abstract)
