Community Reports

Through a variety of projects, publications, and collaborations; we are a reliable source of child care data and information on child care issues.

Picture of Child Care in the Capital Region

Every year, the Council publishes a comprehensive analysis of the supply and demand for child care in the Capital Region. Data is collected directly from child care providers who voluntarily complete a thorough questionnaire regarding child care issues and information. The report details information such as average child care provider wages and benefits, the average cost of child care, and the shortage or surplus of child care in each county. The report is used internally to guide the Council’s activities around child care development, outreach and support. The Picture Of Child Care is also used widely by both the child care and business communities as a tool in decision making.

 

Report to the Community (Annual Report)

The Report to the Community (Annual Report) highlights the efforts made by the Council over the past 12 months and includes information on funding sources and service delivery reports. Presented each year at the Council's Annual Meeting (held the first Wednesday in December).

Strategic Plan

This comprehensive plan for services and activities for early childhood and school-age child care will have significant impact on our community. We have focused on responsive inquiry, informed by both quantitative and qualitative data, as we developed a plan that forges a pathway of  enriched early experiences that will positively influence later learning.
