Licensed child care slots
Licensed child care slots include those in group child care (eight or more children in a group center) and family child care (four to eight children in a private home) providing care and supervision of children under age 7. The data are the sum of daytime child care capacity. Nighttime child care capacity, licensed camps, and public school sites were not included (nighttime capacity is determined by whether a program is approved to offer care between the hours of 9:00 PM and 5:00 AM). This data reflects licensed child care slots as of December 31st each year. Licensing is administered by the Wisconsin Department of Children and Families. These data may have been influenced by the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, starting in 2020.
