Grandparents & Extended Family

For many families, grandparents fill a critical need providing regular child care that is trusted, affordable, and accessible.

In fact, 1 in 4 children under age 5 were cared for by grandparents while their parents worked or attended school. That’s the same number of children enrolled in formal child care programs! There are great rewards to these relationships, but the dynamics can be challenging to navigate. To support this growing group of caregivers, we developed tools and best practices to support professionals and multigenerational families.
