This report is from our friends at Child Care Aware of America:


Picking Up the Pieces: Building A Better Child Care System Post COVID-19 is a new report from Child Care Aware of America.

This year, the world experienced a crisis that no one was prepared for—COVID-19. Many families, communities and businesses in this country were forced to abruptly change their routines and scramble to find consistency in a season of uncertainty.

In past years, Child Care Aware® of America released two annual reports—State Fact Sheets and The U.S. and the High Price of Child Care. This year, they combined the two reports, and are piloting a new resource—the Child Care Data Center—focusing on data collected as recently as July 2020 to capture the massive changes the child care system experienced due to COVID-19.

The downloadable report, along with our new interactive website, are packed with stories, videos and interactive charts comparing accessibility, affordability and quality from 2019 through July 2020.

This year, the report includes:

  • An interactive map
  • 50 new State Fact Sheets
  • Child Care Data Center piloted in six states
  • Video testimonials from providers and families
  • Case studies with examples of how COVID-19 has impacted the supply of child care and the cost to provide it
