Abstract: One aspect of ECE utilization that is relevant for child and family well-being is the amount and timing of hours that young children spend in different ECE settings. This brief from the National Research Center on Hispanic Children & Families uses publicly available data from the 2012 National Survey of Early Care and Education (NSECE) to describe the amount and timing of hours that young Hispanic children from low-income households spend in ECE settings, distinguishing care that takes place during standard weekday hours from care that occurs during nonstandard times (i.e., evening, nighttime, and weekend hours). We focus on low-income households because the challenges of coordinating parental employment and the care of young children are most acute for families with limited economic resources.
