Searching for child care: Stories of Cook County mothers: Report on child care in Cook County 2020


This special edition of our annual Report on Child Care in Cook County tells the stories of families who have some of the hardest-to-meet child care needs as they search for care in today’s child care market. It follows parents through their search, describing their hopes, challenges, and compromises made related to their children’s care. We present these parent stories alongside our annual child care data from across Cook County to capture the limitations of the child care market and the impact on families in a way numbers cannot.
