Where can parents go to find early care services — such as day care and preschool — in the Children’s Corridor? This map (created with Google Fusion Tables) shows the licensed care providers, alongside the under-fve 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.
