Child Care Data

This resource provides data related to services provided by the Department of Social Services, Division of Child Care Services (CCS).  The information is related to licensed for-profit and/or nonprofit centers and before and after school programs, and family child care homes voluntarily choosing to be registered with CCS.  A large number of family home providers choose not to be registered and the information from those programs is not included in this data. The following information is based on 2017 data.
