See All Key Indicators


The licensed child care capacity reflects the number of children that can be served by licensed providers in a given area. While licensure is not the only measure of ensuring quality, it indicates that a provider meets established health and safety standards. According to Child Trends Data Bank, in 2005, 61 percent of children under the age of six spent time in non-parental child care. Licensed early child care programs have a major economic impact throughout the nation as they keep parents employed and productive knowing their children are in safe, reliable care. Access to these programs is especially critical to low-income parents making the transition from welfare to work.
