Research for Action (2019). Making it Work. Examining the Status of Non-Traditional Child Care in Pennsylvania. Philadelphia, USA : Research for Action.


As the number of jobs that require non-traditional work schedules (evenings, weekends, and overnight) increases, families’ need for child care during non-traditional hours has also grown. Yet little is known about the availability of non-traditional child care (NTCC) in Pennsylvania, or about the following questions:

• What types of families rely on NTCC?

• What factors inform a family’s decisions about where to place their children?

• How well are NTCC providers meeting the needs of families?

• What does high-quality mean in the context of after-hours, overnight, and weekend care?

• What impact does the availability of NTCC, or lack thereof, have on Pennsylvania’s workforce? Research for Action (RFA) sought answers to these and other questions by analyzing available quantitative data and conducting focus groups and interviews with families, NTCC providers, and workforce development board staff in Allegheny, Philadelphia, and several North Central Pennsylvania counties.
