Child Care Landscape Analysis

In 2021, the Early Childhood Alliance sought to better understand how families in Onondaga County access child care. Working in partnership with Child Care Solutions and the Onondaga County Department of Social Services – Economic Security, we commissioned Syracuse University’s Maxwell X Lab and the R/E/D Group to conduct a comprehensive child care landscape analysis. The study provides an overview of the child care landscape in Onondaga County. We aim to use the findings to guide investments and work toward an equitable child care system that supports all children in meeting their full potential.
