Faith in Child Care Settings: Findings from Georgia and Massachusetts

Thursday, June 20th-2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

In the United States, child care has long been provided by religious groups or housed in buildings that also serve as places of worship. According to a survey conducted by the Bipartisan Policy Center in 2020, faith-based child care remains a popular choice for many families. However, there has been little research conducted about the faith-based component of the child care sector: who provides faith-based child care, what does it mean to be faith-based, and how many faith-based child care providers are there?

Join us on Thursday, June 20 at 2pm ET for a CPJ-hosted webinar exploring the role of faith in child care settings. This webinar will discuss findings from our recent study in Georgia and Massachusetts, conducted in partnership with Baylor University’s Institute for Studies of Religion.
