Nontraditional-hour child care in Austin/Travis County: Insights from interviews, focus groups, and analyses of supply and demand


 Recent research demonstrates that many families need nontraditional-hour child care (before 7:00 a.m. and after 6:00 p.m. during the traditional workweek and on weekends), yet child care options are scarce during these hours (Schilder et al. 2022). To learn about nontraditional-hour care in Austin/Travis County, United Way for Greater Austin, with funding from the City of Austin, engaged the Urban Institute to lead a study on this topic. The Urban study team examined the need for and supply of nontraditional-hour child care in Austin/Travis County and captured perspectives of community leaders, parents, child care providers, and employers.
