Non-Standard Work Hour Child Care Project

Americans are working more and more non-standard hours. Reasons include growth in the service economy, increasing employment of women which leads to increased demand for off-hours services, and an aging population that needs round-the-clock medical services. One in five full-time workers was working non-standard hours in 1991. As a result of these trends, as well as welfare to work programs, there is a heightened interest in child care during nontraditional hours. This report synthesizes information from other work on this topic; looks behind some of the contradictions and confusion that arise; provides a framework for action by parents, employers, caregivers and policy makers; and offers a tool for consideration of options in an evolving field.
