Executive Summary

The Personal Responsibility and Work Opportunity Reconciliation Act (PRWORA) of 1996 unified the four major federal level subsidized child care streams into the Child Care and Development Fund (CCDF). In order to receive CCDF funds, every state has to conduct a market rate survey to analyze whether child care subsidies adequately allow child care subsidy recipients equal choice and access among child care providers.

One of the requirements laid out by the PRWORA is that each state must conduct a market rate analysis biennially. However, each state is allowed to decide the design and method of the analysis. Though some states do create and conduct a survey, the market rate analysis in Illinois utilizes the Child Care Resource and Referral (CCR&R) administrative data. The administrative data is collected by local CCR&R agencies and maintained by the Illinois Network of Child Care Resource and Referral Agencies (INCCRRA). The INCCRRA December 31, 2009 provider database was used for these analyses.

The Illinois Department of Human Services (IDHS) assistance rates are based upon the daily full-time price of child care for a given market. Inclusion in the market-rate analysis was limited to licensed providers accepting children on a full-time, part-time or both full-time and part-time basis, those currently providing care, those who provide year round or school year care, those who gave referral information, and those with valid child care rate data. The December 31, 2009 database contained records for 13,771 providers who were listed as both active and licensed to provide care, and 9450 of these providers met all of the criteria for inclusion in the market rate survey sample. Separate samples were drawn from the 9450 providers for providers serving children 6 weeks to 5 years old, providers serving children 6 to 12 years old in before and after school programs, and providers serving children 6 to 12 years old in summer care programs. The sample of providers caring for children 6 weeks to 5 years of age included 6479 providers: 1309 licensed child care center centers, 4872 licensed family child care providers, and 298 licensed group family home providers. The sample of providers caring for children 6 to 12 years old in before and after school programs included 2519 providers: 662 licensed center child care providers, 1712 licensed family child care providers, and 145 licensed group family home providers. The sample of providers caring for children 6 to 12 years old in summer programs included 837 providers: 352 licensed child care center providers, 457 licensed family child care providers, and 28 licensed group family home providers.

The Illinois Child Care Market

If a state is to use a market rate analysis to set child care subsidy rates than the market rate survey must reflect "market realities". However, additional factors must be considered including fluctuation in prices by age, the categories of child care, and/or other within state geographical variations.

In the state of Illinois, child care subsidy (assistance) rates are based upon four factors:

  • Geographic Market: currently there are three geographically-defined subsidy tiers.
  • Age of child: Infants and Toddlers (6 weeks-23 months), Twos (24-35 months), Preschool (36-71 months), and School-age (6-12 years).
  • Type of care: Child Care Centers, Family Home Care Providers, and Family Group Home Providers.
  • Licensing status: Licensed versus non-licensed.

Percentile Coverage of IDHS Child Care Assistance

In order to ensure that subsidy recipients have equal access to available child care the CCDF recommends that states provide subsidies at the 75th percentile of market rate. This means that within a local community and dependent on age and category of care rate variations that subsidy care recipients would be able to purchase 75 out of 100 available child care slots.

In the following tables each cell presents a different child care market as defined by license status, type of care setting, child age, and geographic region. The mean percentile across all counties within a reimbursement group is represented in each cell. The percentiles can range from 0.00, (the current IDHS child care assistance rate for the age group within a reimbursement group can buy no slots outright) to 100.00 (the current IDHS child care assistance rate is more than the price of any available child care slot in the market).

Based on these analyses, several generalizations can be made regarding the ability of the Illinois Child Care Assistance Program to cover child care prices within a given market. Almost unilaterally assistance rates do not reach the recommended 75th percentile as recommended by the CCDF. Additionally, for children under the age of 6 assistance rates appear to provide better coverage when children are in family child care homes. Families within the rural Group II region have greater access to available child care slots then those in Group IB, and those in Group IB have greater access than those in Group IA. Finally, assistance rates for school-age children in summer programs fall well short of the recommended 75th percentile while rates for school-age children in before and after school programs tend to exceed the 75th percentile.

Introduction

[Bold face type & italics added for emphasis.]

Child care subsidies were introduced in 1988 as part of welfare reform legislation (in the form of the Family Support Act) and employment legislation (in the Job Opportunities and Basic Skills (JOBS) program), and in the Transitional Child Care (TCC) program. Since then, the purchase of publicly funded child care services has been increasingly informed by a market-based perspective, a perspective reflected in and mandated by subsequent Federal legislation.

In 1996, the Personal Responsibility and Work Opportunity Reconciliation Act (PRWORA) unified the four major federal child care subsidy streams into the single Child Care and Development Fund (CCDF). CCDF regulations outline three central components of the market-based approach to child care subsidies. First, CCDF Final Rule, promulgated in the Federal Register in August 1998, requires Lead Agencies (in Illinois, the Department of Human Services, or, IDHS) to assure that subsidy rates are sufficient "to ensure equal access" for eligible families to child care services in the communities that are comparable to those provided to families who do not receive subsidies. Second, child care payment systems must be structured in such a way as to permit eligible parents to choose among various types of providers, including issuing certificates or vouchers for parents to use in the private market, as well as establishing grants or contracts with child care providers. Third, Lead Agencies must also "collect and disseminate to parents and the general public consumer education information that will promote informed child care choices." (Conducting Market Rate Surveys and Establishing Rate Policies, Child Care Bureau, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, 2001, p. 1.)

Among its stipulations, the CCDF asserts that child care subsidy rates be informed by prevailing "market rates," the price of services within given local child care markets. However, the statutory requirements and regulatory framework associated with the market-based approach to child care delivery give "Lead Agencies" flexibility in establishing rate ceilings and setting rate policies. The market-based approach set out under the CCDF plan requires the three goals to be met - equal access, choice, and consumer education - but requires little in terms of how they are to be met. The CCDF does require, however, that states conduct a local market rate survey on which the state is to rely in order to determine if assistance rates are adequate to ensure equal access. This survey must be conducted within two years of the state's currently approved CCDF plan and biennially thereafter.

What is a Market Rate Survey?

At the core of the market-based approach to the setting of child care subsidies (child care assistance) are market rate surveys. A market rate survey measures the prices charged by providers and paid by parents in a given child care market. As such, market rate surveys only capture data on the price of child care, not on the cost of child care in a given market. The price of care is the fee per child paid by non-subsidized families for child care services or, when serving a family receiving assistance, the subsidy payment rate plus the family's co-payment. On the other hand, the cost of child care is the actual per-child cost of the program (including personnel, facilities, equipment, and supplies, for example) for providing child care services when all contributions are considered, including free rent, fundraising, or donated services. For a variety of reasons, cost of child care may actually exceed price.

While states are required to conduct biennial market rate surveys, neither method nor design is specified within the CCDF Final Rule. A market rate survey must, according to the CCDF, reflect "market realities" if it is to be used by the state in setting subsidies, but other factors should be considered in setting subsidies. Among those factors are variations in market prices by age, categories of care, and/or other variations that may exist.

The Illinois Child Care Market

The following child care arrangements constitute the legal child care arrangements in Illinois for which child care assistance can be paid. They include those child care arrangements that are required to be licensed by the Illinois Department of Children and Family Services (IDCFS) and those that are license-exempt. To be licensed by IDCFS, centers and child care homes must meet specified standards regarding physical facilities, caregiver qualifications, and care of children. To receive IDHS child care payments, caregivers (providers) must be 18 or older and have a valid Social Security or FEIN number.

  • Licensed Child Care Center - Care provided in a center-based location licensed by the Office of Licensing, IDCFS. The center may be for-profit or not-for-profit.
  • License-Exempt Child Care Center - Care provided in a center-based location that is exempt from licensing by IDCFS. These include programs operated by public or private elementary school systems, high schools or institutions of higher learning; programs conducted on federal government premises; and other programs recognized or registered with the Illinois State Board of Education, if children in the program are 3 years old or older.
  • Licensed Child Care Home - Care provided in a home licensed by IDCFS where more than three and up to 12 unrelated children under the age of 12 may be cared for, including the provider's children. The actual number of children is determined by the ages of the children. The provider may serve the maximum of 12, which includes four school-age children, only if she or he has an assistant.
  • Licensed Group Child Care Home - Care provided in a home licensed by IDCFS where no more than 16 unrelated children under the age of 12 may be cared for, including the provider's children. The actual number of children is determined by the ages of the children. The provider may serve the maximum of 16 only if she or he has an assistant and meets a number of other IDCFS requirements.
  • License-Exempt Child Care Home - Care provided in a home exempt from licensing by IDCFS where no more than three unrelated children or a family of children under the age of 12 may be cared for, including the provider's children.
  • Relative Care - Care provided by a relative, not including the child's parents.
  • In-Home Child Care - Care provided in the home of the child.

The Illinois Market Rate Survey

This report presents information on the market rates providers are charging for providing child care, broken down by several of the factors suggested by CCDF rules (age, categories of care, within state variations).

(Table 1.) Factors Considered in the Current Illinois Market Rate Survey

Factor: Categories of Care - Type of Provider

  • Licensed child care centers
  • Licensed family child care homes
  • Licensed family child care group homes

Factor: Categories of Care - Child Age 

  • Infants (6 weeks-14 months) and Toddlers (15-23 months) versus Twos (24-35 months) versus Preschoolers (36-59 months) and Fives (60-71 months)
  • School-Age Children (6-12 years)

Factor: Categories of Care -Within-State Variations 

  • Counties
  • Service Delivery Areas

Methods

The majority of state market rate studies are conducted as surveys of representative samples of child care providers in that state. Another approach, which does not require an actual survey of providers, involves the analysis of existing Child Care Resource and Referral (CCR&R) administrative data. The market-rate analyses described here represent the latter approach. (For a discussion of the strengths and weaknesses of the use of CCR&R data for child care market rate studies, see Grobe, D., Weber, R.B., Pratt, C.C., and Emlen, A.C. (2003). Market Rate Study Guidebook: A guide to implementing a child care market rate study using child care resoruce & referral data. Oregon Child Care Research Partnership.)

While the majority of CCDF funds support child care assistance (subsidy) programs, CCDF requires a minimum of four percent of federal funds be allocated to activities that support the improvement of child care quality. These activities include consumer education, referrals to child care programs, provider training, and technical assistance. IDHS contracts with local child care resource and referral agencies (CCR&Rs) to provide these services to families, child care providers, and other community members. Additionally, the CCR&Rs administer child care subsidies through the Child Care Assistance Program (CCAP), which helps working families of lower income pay for child care.

Child Care Resource and Referral services in Illinois are provided by sixteen contracted local agencies, each with a uniquely defined service delivery area (SDA). Each SDA is made up of one or more Illinois counties, with a given county wholly contained within an SDA. Together, all 16 agencies cover the 102 counties in Illinois (See map in Appendix A). Each CCR&R has one or more physical locations within its SDA; many agencies are housed in larger parent organizations such as colleges/universities, YWCAs or other community agencies. All Illinois CCR&R agencies are members of the Illinois Network of Child Care Resource and Referral Agencies (INCCRRA), which supports them in their efforts.

Staff of each CCR&R use a common database management package, NACCRRAware, to collect and store information on child care providers offering care within the SDA and on parents seeking child care. Information about providers is matched against parents' child care needs to produce a listing of referrals for the parents seeking child care.

INCCRRA combines the provider data collected within each CCR&R to construct a statewide database of Illinois child care providers. The provider database contains information on child care centers and family child care homes licensed by the Illinois Department of Children and Family Services (IDCFS) as well as those license-exempt centers and homes that choose to be listed with their local CCR&R. Periodically, IDCFS provides INCCRRA with a list of its licensees. Each CCR&R then contacts or attempts to contact providers within its service area to determine if providers wish to be listed for referral in the database and to obtain detailed information and/or updated information, including:

  • Basic demographic data including provider name, address, and telephone number
  • Type of care
  • License status
  • Days and hours of care
  • Number and ages of children served
  • Rates by ages of children served

Within each CCR&R, information is updated annually on all local providers, with additional updates occurring for specific data elements throughout the year. Each quarter, copies of the provider database from each CCR&R are submitted to INCCRRA where staff conduct data checks and then merge all of the data into one large, statewide database. For this market rate study, CCR&Rs staff updated provider rate data during the period October 1 to December 31, 2009. These data were then compiled by INCCRRA and submitted for this market rate analysis.

Licensed Providers: Children 6 Weeks to 5 Years Old

This section includes the analyses for providers of children 6 weeks to 5 years. A licensed provider can only care for a child 6 weeks or older. An additional sample was drawn for providers caring for school-age children ages 6-12 years. Providers can provide care for either age group or both age groups. The sample for 6 weeks to 5 years and the sample for school-aged children are not mutually exclusive.

Selection of the Market Rate Survey Sample

The December 31, 2009 INCCRRA provider database contained records for 16,840 active providers. The market rate sample was limited to providers who were:

  • Licensed
  • Actively providing care
  • Provided updated rates
  • Providing care on a full-time basis
  • Providing care full-year or for the school year
  • Providing care to children 6 weeks to 5 years
  • Not providing "Special Categories" of care

Providers also needed to provide during the update:

  • Current full-time rates for a least one age category for their primary shift
  • Licensed capacity (child care centers (CCC)) for at least one age group for their primary shift, or
  • Enrollment (for family child care (FCC)) for at least one age group for their primary shift.

Of the 16,840 active providers, 13,771 providers were listed as both active and licensed to provide care, but 201 of those providers were not actively providing care at the time of the update leaving a total of 13,570 providers. 9895 providers were successfully contacted, however of these 445 providers did not provide rates. This resulted in total sample of 9450. Providers with the following status updates are not included in the market rate sample: "temporary no referrals", "keeping license-not providing care", "pending-surrendered license".  These providers were removed from the sample since they are not actively providing care and thus could skew the local rates. Table 2 demonstrates the reasons that providers did not provide current rates.

Table 2: Number of Providers Completing the MRS Update but Not Reporting Rates

Reason For No Rate Data Category Total Percent
Free Program to income-eligible 42 9.4%
Call for rates 269 60.5%
Charges variable rates 58 13.0%
New provider, has not yet established rates 96 21.6%

*Providers could give more than one response which is why this will not equal 100%

From the 9450 providers who provided updated rates and completed the update those who provided only "Preschool", "School-Age", "Before and/or After school" care, those who were identified as "Head Start", "Illinois Board of Education (ISBE) Pre-K" "Parks and Recreation Programs" and "Special Needs Child Care Centers" were excluded. With these exclusions the total number of providers was 9431.

For the Market Rate Survey, assistance rates are based upon the daily full-time price of child care for the given child care market. As a result we further selected only those active providers accepting children on a full-time (or both full and part-time) basis and those who provide care during the school-year or year round. (NOTE: Full time and part time status is provided by NACCRRAware on the shift level. Providers may report up to three shifts - though they may have more. However, complete information is only required on one shift. Therefore, while rates are required for all shifts, capacity is only required for the pirmary shift.) Additionally, the sample was limited to those providers who gave valid enrollment/capacity data and valid rate information for at least one primary shift. Finally, the sample was limited to those providers who worked more than 35 hours a week and who indicated that their shift ran 4 or more days a week. This final sample includes 6311 providers: 1309 child care centers, 4715 family child care providers, and 287 group family child care providers.

Some Statistical Terminology

Mean - the average, calculated by adding all scores in a sample together and dividing by the number of scores.

Percentile - in a frequency distribution of numerical scores, the percentile of any specific score x is the percentage of scores out of the total number of scores that fall at or below x in value. For example, the 75th percentile in these analyses is the rate below which 75 percent of rates fall.

Median - the 50th percentile, the score that divides the distribution of scores in a sample in half, the score below which and above which 50% of all scores fall.

Confidence Interval - the range of values, based on the sample mean, that with a 95% probability, includes the population mean

Full-Time Daily Licensed Child Care Center Rates

Child care centers are allowed to provide full-time hourly, daily, weekly, and/or monthly rates for the NACCRRAware update. The market rate analysis utilizes full-time daily rates; however, if a full-time daily rate was not provided then weekly rates were divided by the number of days a week a provider provided care, and/or monthly rates were divided by the number of days a month a provider worked, and/or hourly rates were multiplied by the number of hours a provider worked per shift. If a provider gave more than one rate (weekly and monthly) then for the purpose of this analysis, precedence was given first to weekly rates, then to monthly rates, and finally to hourly rates.

Child capacity and child care rate information can be recorded on NACCRRAware for the following seven age groups:

  1. Infants (6 weeks-14 months)
  2. Toddlers (15-23 months)
  3. Twos (24-35 months)
  4. Preschoolers (36-59 months)
  5. Fives/Kindergarteners (60-71 months)
  6. Before/After School (6-12 years)
  7. Summer/Holiday (6-12 years)

Table 4 represents licensed child care center rates for children 6 weeks to 5 years old for the state of Illinois. Child care centers in Illinois charge on average between $30 and $45 dollars a day for full time care. Additionally, centers charge more for infants and younger children.

Child care markets are defined by specific geographical regions, age group, and type of care (family child care or center child care). Within the state of Illinois, child care markets are broken down into three reimbursement tiers represented by groups of counties with similar populations and makeups. Group 1A consists of 7 urban counties: Cook, DeKalb, DuPage, Kane, Kendall, Lake and McHenry. Families in these counties who are eligible receive the highest child care assistance rates in the state. Group 1B is comprised of 16 counties spread throughout the state that have at least one urban area. These counties include: Boone, Champaign, Kankakee, Madison, McLean, Monroe, Ogle, Peoria, Rock Island, Sangamon, St. Clair, Tazewell, Whiteside, Will, Winnebago, and Woodford. Eligible families in these counties receive child care assistance below that of those families in group IA but above the rates received by families who live in the counties represented by group II. All other counties in Illinois, which are primarily rural, make up group II and received the lowest rates of child care assistance (see appendix B for the Illinois child care assistance payment rates that were in effect at the time survey data was collected).

Table 5a and 5b represent full-time daily child care rates for licensed child care centers by county reimbursement group by age. Table 5a provides daily full-time market rates for licensed child care centers by the NACCRRAware age categories for children ages 5 and under. Table 5b provides the daily full-time market rates for licensed child care centers by the current IDHS 6 weeks to 5 year old payment categories broken down into: 1) infants and toddlers (6 weeks-23 months), 2) two year olds (24-35 months) and 3) preschoolers (36-71 months). Of the 102 counties in Illinois 78 counties in the data base had child care centers that met all the requirements for inclusion in the market rate sample.

Additional Fees Charged

During the market rate update, child care centers were asked whether they had any additional fees that they regularly charged parents. Table 6 demonstrates that more than 75% of all centers charge a registration/application fee and 25% required an additional deposit. Additionally, nearly 45% of child care centers charged additional fees for field trips.

Table 6: Child Care Center Providers Who Charge Additional Fees

Fees N Percent Total

Deposit Required 338 25.8%
Field Trips 587 44.9%
Transportation 91 7.0%
Materials/Supplies 153 11.7%
Meal/Snack Fee 20 1.5%
Availability of Care During Non-Standard Hours

The availability of child care during evenings, overnight and on weekends is important as many families have non-traditional work schedules. For the market rate analysis, a provider could be represented by more than one shift if they met all of the inclusion requirements. The market rate sample includes 1309 providers who offered 1316 full time shifts. Only 11 (0.8%) of the 1309 providers were licensed to provide overnight care. Of the 1316 full time shifts, 4 shifts were full-time evening shifts and 3 shifts were full-time overnight shifts. Only full-time shifts were examined for this analysis.

Licensed Family Child Care Homes

Licensed family child care homes were divided into those providers who had a group home license and those providers who did not have a license to provide group care. This section of the market rate analysis covers the 4715 licensed family child care providers who care for children 6 weeks to 5 years, and do not have a group home license. Table 7 depicts this sample of licensed family child care home providers broken down by Child Care Resource and Referral (CCR&R) service delivery areas (SDA).

Full-Time Daily Licensed Family Child Care Rates

As with licensed child care centers, daily full-time rates for family child care providers were calculated for each of the five NACCRRAware age categories. Table 8 presents the daily, full-time rates charged by family child care home providers for the state of Illinois. Family child care provider rates are substantially lower overall than those of child care centers, and the range of available rates is also much smaller. On average, rates range from the mid $20s for five year olds to the high $20s for infants.

Licensed Group Child Care Homes

A family child care provider may be licensed by IDCFS as a group child care home provider if they serve no more than 16 unrelated children under the age of 12. This total must include the provider's own children. The actual number of children allowed is determined by the ages of the children. In order to qualify to serve the maximum of 16 children a caregiver must have an assistant and meet other IDCFS requirements. Table 11 presents the breakdown of the 287 licensed group child care home providers by SDA.

Additional Fees Charged

The licensed family group child care home providers were asked if they charged additional fees. Table 14 presents the additional fees charged by the 287 providers. More than 17% charge a registration fee while 35% require a deposit.

Table 14: Additional Fees Charged by Licensed Group Child Care Home Providers

Field Trips 29 10.1%
Transportation 13 4.5%
Materials Supplies 11 3.8%
Meal Snack Fee 1 0.3%
Availability of Care During Non-Standard Hours

Of the 300 full-time shifts reported by the 287 group child care home providers, 9 (3%) were full-time evening shifts and 4 (1.3%) were full-time overnight shifts. 34 (11.8%) of these providers were licensed to provide overnight care.

Licensed Providers: School-Age Children

Before and After School Programs

Providers were selected for the before and after school, school-age children sample if they accepted children before and after school, if they were actively providing care, were licensed and accepted children ages 6 years or older. Unlike the sample selection process for child care providers caring for children 6 weeks to 5 years, selection of before and after school providers caring for children 6 years and older was not dependent on whether the provider accepted children on a full-time or part-time basis. Providers were excluded from the sample if they were not accepting referrals, if they did not provide data for before and after school programs, if they did not report license capacity (for child care centers) or enrollment (for family child care homes), and if they only offered summer programs.

As a result of these selection criteria the total sample of before and after school programs for school-age children is 2517 licensed providers. Of these, 662 were centers, 1710 were family child care homes, and 145 were group homes. Tables 15, 16, and 17 show the breakdown of these providers who accept school-age children before and after school, by SDA. Table 15 presents the results for licensed child care centers, Table 16 presents the results for licensed family child care home providers, and Table 17 presents the results for licensed child care group homes.

Additional Fees Charged

Licensed child care centers, family home care providers and family group home providers reported charging additional fees for school-age children. Table 22, 23, and 24 display these charges. More than 10% of center providers, family child care home providers, and group home providers charge additional fees for registration, deposits, and field trips. However, it appears that more child care centers than family care homes and group homes charge these fees.

Availability of Care During Non-Standard Hours

For the market rate survey analysis, a provider could be represented by more than one shift if the inclusion criteria for before and after school programs were met.

Of the 662 centers, 13 providers (2%) held a license for overnight care. Of the 754 shifts provided by the 662 centers, 28 (3.7%) were evening or overnight shifts.

Family care providers were more likely to offer non-standard hours for school-aged children than centers. 358 providers (20.9%) were licensed to provide overnight care. Of the 2351 shifts provided by the 1710 family child care home providers, 412 shifts were during nonstandard hours (387 evening shifts, 25 overnight shifts).

Of the 145 group child care home providers, 26 (17.9%) providers were licensed for overnight care. Of the 198 shifts provided by the 145 group child care home providers, 53 (26.7%) shifts offered care during non-standard hours.

Full-Time Summer Programs

When school is not in session over the summer months, many school-age children are cared for in full-time summer child care programs provided by centers, family child care providers, and/or group home providers.

The sample selection process for the full-time school-age summer programs was nearly identical to that of the 6 weeks to 5 years of age sample, but this sample included providers who provided care during the summer only, or year round (including the summer). The sample selection process resulted in a sample of 837 licensed providers. Of these providers, 352 were child care center providers, 457 were licensed family child care providers, and 28 were group child care home providers. Tables 25, 26, and 27 present the breakdown by SDA of providers in the market rate sample who offer full-time summer programs for school-age children.

Availability of Care During Non-Standard Hours

Those providers who offered full-time care for school-age children during the summer did not offer very many non-standard shifts. The 352 child care center providers offered 395 shifts of which 10 (2.5%) were non-standard (4 overnight shifts and 6 evening shifts). 12 (3.0%) of these providers had a license to provide care for children overnight.

Family care providers appear to be more likely to offer non-standard shifts than centers. Of the 457 family care providers, there were 521 shifts offered with 40 (7.7%) evening shifts and 25 (4.8%) overnight shifts. 96 (21.1%) family care providers had a license to provide overnight care. For family group home providers, there were 32 shifts for the 28 providers. Of these 32 shifts, 3 (9.4%) were evening shifts and 1 (3.1%) was an overnight shift. In total, 5 (15.6%) of the group home providers possessed a license to provide overnight care.

Market Rates Compared To Child Care Assistance Program (CCAP) Rates

One of the main functions of the Market Rate Survey is to analyze child care assistance rates (subsidized child care rates) to the market rates for the state of Illinois. States are encouraged to explore geographic breakdown of the child care market. In the state of Illinois the child care market is geographically separated into three reimbursement tiers represented by groups of counties. Group 1A includes the urban counties of Cook, DeKalb, DuPage, Kane, Kendall, Lake and McHenry. The eligible families in these counties receive the highest assistance rates in the state. Group 1B include: Boone, Champaign, Kankakee, Madison, McLean, Monroe, Ogle, Peoria, Rock Island, Sangamon, St. Clair, Tazewell, Whiteside, Will, Winnebago, and Woodford counties. Families who live in a group IB county receive the next highest level of child care assistance. The final reimbursement tier, Group II includes all other counties in the state of Illinois. Families in this reimbursement tier receive the lowest rates of child care assistance.

Table 35 through 43 display the maximum CCAP payment for child care centers, family home providers and family group home providers, before and after school providers (CCC, FCC, and group homes), and summer programs (CCC, FCC, group homes). The tables are broken down by county, by age of care group. For each segment, the total license capacity, and the 25th, median, and 75th percentiles of the market rate are presented.

The final column within these tables is the CCAP percentile. This column displays the percentile of available slots the maximum CCAP payment will cover. For example, a percentile of 75 means that the CCAP subsidy will allow a parent/guardian to choose from and purchase a child care slot from 75% of the available child care slots on the market. A 100.00 CCAP percentile means that using the CCAP subsidy, a parent/guardian can purchase any slot in the market. A CCAP percentile of 0.00 means that using the CCAP subsidy a parent will not be able to purchase any slots within a given market.

Please note that the samples in this section are varied due to missing provider data. Additionally, if there were less than 2 providers or less than 3 slots in a county for the type of care or age group, the data is not shown. Occasionally, it is necessary to exclude a County even if there are 2 or more providers or more than 3 slots and those providers have complete data due to the data presenting an inaccurate picture of that county. For example, in the analysis of CCAP rates for Cook County licensed family child care, age 6-12 years, summer programs only, data for 4 slots could be included in this analysis. However, those 4 cases present an inaccurate representation of Cook County as they do not represent the range of providers in Cook County. As such, Cook County is not included in this analysis for Table 42.

Note: A given county may not be represented in the table because rates were not available in the INCCRRA database for that county or no provider from that county met the criteria for inclusion in the sample. Data are not displayed if rates are based upon fewer than 3 slots.

CCAP %ile is the percentage of rates in a given market that fall at or below the CCAP maximum rate. Therefore, a percentile of 0.0 means that the CCAP maximum subsidy is LESS than the MINIMUM rate for the given market. Similarly, a percentile of 100.0 means that the CCAP maximum subsidy is MORE than the MAXIMUM rate for the given market.

Note: A given county may not be represented in the table because rates were not available in the INCCRRA database for that county or no provider from that county met the criteria for inclusion in the sample. Data are not displayed if rates are based upon fewer than 3 slots.

CCAP %ile is the percentage of rates in a given market that fall at or below the CCAP maximum rate. Therefore, a percentile of 0.0 means that the CCAP maximum subsidy is LESS than the MINIMUM rate for the given market. Similarly, a percentile of 100.0 means that the CCAP maximum subsidy is MORE than the MAXIMUM rate for the given market.

Note: A given county may not be represented in the table because rates were not available in the INCCRRA database for that county or no provider from that county met the criteria for inclusion in the sample. Data are not displayed if rates are based upon fewer than 3 slots.

CCAP %ile is the percentage of rates in a given market that fall at or below the CCAP maximum rate. Therefore, a percentile of 0.0 means that the CCAP maximum subsidy is LESS than the MINIMUM rate for the given market. Similarly, a percentile of 100.0 means that the CCAP maximum subsidy is MORE than the MAXIMUM rate for the given market.

Appendix C: License-Exempt Child Care Rates

The following tables include data collected from those child care providers who are licensed exempt and chose to be listed with their local CCR&Rs. This is a small sample of the licensed exempt providers for the state of Illinois and the extent to which these providers represent the population of licensed exempt providers is not clear. Table 1 presents rates for children 3 to 5 years of age for child care centers. Table 2 presents rates for children 6 weeks to 5 years of age in family child care homes. Table 3 presents rates for children 6 to 12 years of age in child care center summer programs. Too little data existed to create tables for children ages 6-12 years in before or after school programs (centers and family child care homes), and for school-age children in summer care in family child care homes.

Appendix D: Technical Note

The rates presented in this report are a function not only of the rate charged by each provider for a particular age group but also a function of the number of child care spaces or slots available for that age group for all providers serving that age group within a particular market. Thus, the mean rate is a weighted mean, with each provider's rate for a given age group weighted by the licensed capacity for children of that age group. Percentiles moreover, are based upon weighting a given rate by the number of slots available at that rate, for a given age group, within a given payment region and then ordering the rates from lowest to highest.

By way of example, suppose there are two providers of infant care in a given region. One, Provider A, charges $10.00 per day and the other, Provider B, $20.00 per day. The simple mean of the two rates is $15.00 (($10.00 + $20.00) / 2 (providers)). However, Provider A has a capacity of 10 slots for infants whereas Provider B has a capacity of 20 slots. The weighted mean of the rates is $16.67 (($10.00 x 10 + $20.00 x 20) / 30 (slots)) reflecting the relative greater availability of rates at the higher $20.00 price.

Likewise, a given percentile may also differ dramatically depending on whether it is calculated by provider or by slot. Suppose this time there are four providers of infant care. Provider A charges $10.00 per day, Provider B $20.00 per day, Provider C $30.00 per day, and Provider D $40.00 per day. Let's say we wish to determine the 75th percentile and do so based on a per-provider basis. Determined in this manner, the 75th percentile is $30.00. On the other hand, if we choose to identify the 75th percentile considering the number of available slots for each rate, we may come to a different result. Suppose Provider A has one slot, Provider B two slots, Provider C three slots, and Provider D six slots. If you were to line up the rates of those 12 slots from lowest to highest and select that rates that determine where 75% of rates fall below, you would find that $40.00 represents the 75th percentile.
