Virginia Child Care Mapping Project


Child Care Aware of Virginia’s child care mapping project is designed to enable viewers to see the various types of child care programs throughout Virginia. Overlayed with child poverty data (varying shades of red with red shading darkening as poverty levels increase), it is clear that some high poverty areas have few licensed (or quality rated) child care programs for families. Each of the maps can be viewed from a statewide perspective or viewers can zoom in to see counties, communities, or neighborhoods. A legend within each  map denotes the type of child care (e.g., licensed or registered homes, licensed centers, quality rated centers differentiated by star level, etc).
