Demographics & Trends
The LOCATE: Child Care search service collects data on the supply, demand and cost of child care in each region and disseminates that data in an annual Child Care Demographic report for each county. This data, along with information collected locally by APPLES Professional Development staff is used to assess regional needs and plan our services. Child Care Statistics and Data on Children, Families, and Child Care, collected uniformly from Garrett, Allegany and Washington Counties, is the foundation of our annual assessments and service plans.
Child Care Demographics includes data on population, income, workforce participation, and child care in each Western Maryland county.
