Child care use for young children during nontraditional hours: Findings from analysis of the 2019 National Survey of Early Care and Education


Many families now need child care during nontraditional hours (NTH). Understanding the types of child care those families use for their young children has become a growing concern for policymakers interested in supporting the types of child care that meets families’ needs. We define nontraditional hours as 6:00 p.m. to 7:00 a.m. on weekdays and any hours on the weekend. To answer policy-relevant questions about nontraditional-hour child care, we analyzed data from the 2019 public use National Survey of Early Care and Education (NSECE). (author abstract)
