On April 21, please join BPC for our webcast event on parents’ experiences with child care during the coronavirus, including highlights from a new nationwide survey.
Our new survey conducted in partnership with Morning Consult finds that child care in the United States is still necessary for parents to work, even amidst changing work environments. But right now, 60% of child care programs are closed for the foreseeable future, and, in part due to these closures, nearly two-thirds of parents in need of child care are having difficulty finding it. Most troubling, almost 80% of essential workers have been unable to continue using their regular child care arrangement, further upending their routines and schedules and adding unnecessary stress.
Join us to learn more about the survey results and what they mean for the future of the child care market.
