Child Care Deserts

About 25% of  Iowa zip codes qualify for child care deserts.

Definition – a child care desert is a zip code that: (a)  has at least 31 kids under age 5 (b)  has at least one registered child care facility and (c)  has no more than 3 kids per each spot in a registered child care facility as defined by QRS-rated child care providers.
