New Nationwide Child Care Data Center Coming Soon

Child Care Aware of Washington is participating with Child Care Aware of America and the University of Chicago’s NORC research institute in building a new data resource that will provide in-depth child care data for the entire country. The new project, called the Child Care Data Center, will provide rich and interactive data about the state of child care in the U.S.

Two staff members from Child Care of Washington have joined the advisory panel for this new data center, and Washington is one of nine pilot states. The data center is funded in part by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and should launch in March 2020. Once completed it will fill major gaps in what we know and quantify about child care across the country.
