Community Data Bank
Starting Point’s extensive data bank is a valuable aid to planning and programs.
Starting Point uses the data bank to pinpoint neighborhoods with child care shortages, income levels of parents seeking care, need for care, and other statistics. This helps us efficiently plan region-wide child care services and programs. For our four-county region, the information is a valuable source of information on young children and their families. The data bank is also helpful for grant writing and identifying areas where we can make the greatest impact. It is an essential tool for anyone working to improve the lives of children and their families in our region.
For Early Childhood Education:

For Out-of-School Time:
