Nontraditional-hour child care in Austin/Travis County: Key findings and recommendations


This fact sheet summarizes key study findings from a rigorous study of nontraditional-hour child care that are relevant to policymakers in Texas and in Austin/Travis County. The Urban study team assessed the potential and actual demand and supply of nontraditional-hour child care by analyzing data from the American Community Survey, the Survey of Income and Program Participation, the Texas Workforce Commission, and from more than 60 Austin/Travis County community leaders, parents, child care providers, and employers. Study participants also shared perspectives on the best types of nontraditional-hour care and reflections on how the lack of care impacts employers, child care providers, parents, and the community.
