This fact sheet provides nationally representative estimates of the distances between families’ homes and the regular nonparental care they use for children 5 years and under.
The fact sheet present estimates separately for:
- infants/toddlers and preschoolers
- different levels of household income-to-poverty ratio
- selected types of ECE providers
Estimates show that regardless of age, about half of the children in unpaid, individual care are cared for in their own homes.
