A state-by-state look at child care in crisis: Understanding early effects of the coronavirus pandemic

On March 12, as the country was beginning to recognize the ways in which the spread of the coronavirus would jeopardize lives and livelihoods, the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) developed a brief survey asking child care programs to share the challenges they were expecting to face and to comment on what they needed to protect children, families, and our nation’s supply of child care programs. By March 25, 11,500 individuals from all 50 states and the District of Columbia had responded to the survey, 34% of whom work in center-based child care, and 53% who work in family child care homes. Initial national data is summarized in this "Child Care in Crisis" brief alongside NAEYC's initial recommendations for state action. (author abstract)
