Child care and public transit dashboard


Public transit and licensed child care are essential components of Nebraska’s infrastructure. For many working parents in Lincoln and Greater Omaha, the proximity of child care options to public transit lines and stops plays a central role in their ability to access early childhood programs and reach their own workplaces in a timely and consistent manner. First Five Nebraska partnered with Child Care Aware of America (CCAoA) and the Alliance for Early Success to develop an interactive tool that explores how these systems relate to one another in metropolitan Nebraska. The Child Care and Public Transit Dashboard is designed to give policymakers, city administrators, urban planners, economic developers, employers and child care providers a detailed snapshot of the child care and public transit landscape in Lancaster, Douglas and Sarpy counties. Our goal is to illuminate current challenges and opportunities and, moving forward, provide a basis for making well-informed and strategic decisions to increase access to licensed child care in our state’s urban centers.
