Where can parents go to find early care services — such as day care and preschool — in the Children’s Corridor? This map shows the licensed care providers, alongside the under 5 population displayed by census tract. By exploring this map, you can see which areas have a high demand for child care services and whether there are facilities to meet those demands. In one three-tract region in northeast Original Aurora, for example, there are 1780 children under age five and only two early childhood care locations.
This map can help identify gaps and potential opportunities for service expansion.
Here is a printable map that displays the same data. On this version, the under 5 population is compiled by Corridor hub (click the image for a larger version or download a pdf):
