Creative Applications of Data: Early Childhood Care & Education - July 2017 Idea Showcase Presentation
Learn about the newly-launched Early Care and Education Map, a digital mapping tool that leverages neighborhood data from Denver’s seven-county region to show where quality, licensed early childhood resources are located relative to where young children live. The Early Care and Education Map is a tool we created to identify a community’s access to ECE facilities across metro Denver. The data collected answers a complicated question: How far do families travel when choosing a particular ECE? Built to help providers, funders, policymakers and advocates who want to better understand the existing landscape of metro Denver early care and education providers, the ECE Map can inform decision-making related to public and private sector investment, provider expansion, spending of quality improvement dollars, and identifying where additional subsidies are needed.
