Parents under Pressure: Childcare Survey Report 2022

Insights from new research with working parents

Read our new, short, infographic-rich report to discover what working parents need from their employers now more than ever. There is a particularly pressing need concerning childcare.

In September 2022, Bright Horizons conducted research with nearly 3,800 working parents. Some of these are employees of our client organisations, some are families whose children have their early years education in our community nurseries and many of them are independent families with no connection to Bright Horizons.

The findings are stark.

  • Cultures have opened up in terms of discussing family life at work; yet many still feel these conversations will impact career progression.
  • Parents are needing and using more childcare than 18 months ago, due to office returns and hybrid working.
  • However, over half of these parents occasionally or regularly manage without formal care due to lack of available or affordable quality care.

The report also outlines the role of employers in supporting this care need and ensuring employees remain both engaged and productive in these challenging times.
