Parents who work nontraditional hours—before 7:00 a.m. or after 6:00 p.m. on weekdays or anytime on weekends—need child care that is reliable and safe. Understanding the child care needs of parents who work nontraditional-hour schedules is a growing concern for parents, employers, and community leaders. To learn about nontraditional-hour child care needs in Austin/Travis County, Urban Institute researchers interviewed parents, employers, child care providers, and community leaders. This fact sheet presents findings relevant to parents. We interviewed parents who identified as racially and ethnically diverse, including parents who identified as Black, Hispanic, Native American, biracial, and white. (author abstract)
