Total licensed capacity

For licensed child care centers with ExceleRate ratings of bronze, silver, or gold, the total licensed capacity of the center.

Source of data: Illinois Network of Child Care Resource and Referral Agencies (INCCRRA)

Date of data: June 2016 (FY 2016)

Geographic region: These data are available by state, county, township, IL House district, IL Senate district, US Congressional district, ISBE region, IDHS region, municipality, ZIP Code ZCTA, ZIP Code postal, unit and elementary school district, and Chicago Community Area.

Note: The total licensed capacity at any one time for a child care center may be less than the total capacity across all the shifts (or sessions) operated by the child care center. For example, a child care center that is licensed to serve 20 children at any one time may serve 20 children in one all-day session (for a total of 20 children). Alternately, the child care center may serve 20 children in each of two half-day sessions (for a total of 40 children).

Note: Total licensed capacity is not the same as enrollment. The number of children enrolled may be less than the total licensed capacity.

Note: This number reflects total capacity for all children 0 through 5. For total capacity by children 0 and 1; by children 2; and by children 3, 4, and 5, see “Total capacity across sessions 0 and 1 year,” “Total capacity across sessions 2 years,” and “Total capacity across sessions 3 and 4 years (and 5 to K).”

Note: INCCRRA notes that data for some centers are not included. Therefore, the total capacity reported here may not be identical to the true total capacity. INCCRRA collects these data for purposes of parental referral, rather than for the specific purposes of the design of IECAM.

Note: Child care centers serve families and children from 6 weeks old up to 13 years of age.
