Fact Sheet: Provision of Early Care and Education during Non-Standard Hours

Publication Date: May 8, 2015


The National Survey of Early Care and Education (NSECE) includes data from four integrated, nationally representative surveys conducted in 2012 to understand the supply of and demand for Early Care and Education in the United States. This fact sheet on non-standard hours uses data from the NSECE to describe the flexibility of available ECE in the U.S., providing nationally representative estimates of the percentage of ECE providers serving young children (aged birth through 5 years) who offer services during non-standard hours as well as those who permit parents flexibility in scheduling and payment for services. Estimates are presented separately for center- and home-based providers.
