In NYC, and nationwide, families with young children need help. They are scrambling to find affordable child care that meets their diverse needs, ranging from overnight shifts to culturally-aligned care. This panel highlights an innovative public/private partnership of the NYC Mayor’s Office, Robin Hood Foundation, and All Our Kin, as they prioritize responsive care. In particular, we will focus on how home-based daycare is uniquely attuned to today’s families: providing child care that’s on their block, is in an intimate setting, speaks their language, and supports nonstandard work schedules.
