Part-Time Child Care

Part-Time Child Care refers to child care that is available for a limited number of days or hours in a given week. There does not seem to be a clear dividing line between Part-Time and Full-Time Child Care. Some programs consider anything less than 40 hours a week to be Part-Time, while others define Part-Time as anything less than three days a week.
