Market Rate Survey of Licensed Child Care Programs in Illinois FY08

Prepared by: Philip C. Garnier, PhD & Laura L. Hickman, Department of Human and Community Development, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign for the Illinois Department of Human Services, submitted: February 2009

Executive Summary

In 1996, the Personal Responsibility and Work Opportunity Reconciliation Act (PRWORA) unified four major federal child care subsidy streams into the single Child Care and Development Fund (CCDF). Among the requirements to receive CCDF funds, each state must conduct a local market rate survey to assess if subsidies are adequate to allow subsidy recipients equal access to and choice among potential child care providers.

States are required to conduct a market rate survey biennially, but neither method nor design is specified by the CCDF. While a number of states conduct actual surveys, the market-rate analysis used in Illinois and described here was conducted using existing Child Care Resource and Referral (CCR&R) administrative data. These data are collected by local CCR&R agencies and aggregated and maintained by the Illinois Network of Child Care Resource and Referral Agencies (INCCRRA). The INCCRRA December 31, 2007 provider database was used for these analyses.

The Illinois Department of Human Services (IDHS) child care assistance program rates are based upon the daily full-time price of child care for a given market. Thus inclusion in the market-rate analysis was limited to licensed providers accepting children on a full-time (or both full- and part-time) basis, those providing care at the time, those who provided care year-round (or school year), those providers who chose to provide referral information, and providers with valid rate data. The December 31, 2007 database contained records for 14,078 active, licensed child care providers, with 8773 of these fitting the inclusion criteria for the Market Rate Survey sample. From the 8773 providers, separate samples were drawn for providers serving children 6 weeks to 5 years old, providers serving children 6 to 12 in before and after school programs, and providers serving children 6 to 12 in summer programs. The sample of providers caring for children 6 weeks to 5 year old contained 7743 unique providers: 1350 child care centers, 6393 family child care providers, and 364 of the latter being group family care home providers. The sample of providers of care to 6 to 12 year olds in before and after school programs contained 2859 licensed providers: 683 licensed child care centers, 2022 licensed family child care home providers, and 154 group child care home providers. The sample of providers of care to 6 to 12 year olds in summer programs contained 1020 licensed providers: 432 licensed child care centers, 588 licensed family child care providers, and 26 group child care home providers.

The Illinois Child Care Market

A market rate survey must reflect "market realities" if it is to be used by the state in setting subsidies, but other factors should be considered. Among those factors are variations in market prices by age, categories of care, and/or other within-state variations that may exist.

In Illinois, child care assistance rates are based upon four factors:

  • Geographic market (Currently three geographically-defined subsidy tiers).
  • Age of child (Currently, Infants and Toddlers (0-23 months); Twos (24-35 months; Preschool (36-71 months) and School-age (6-12 years);
  • Type of care (Child care centers vs. family home care providers)
  • Licensing Status (Licensed vs. nonlicensed).

Percentile Coverage of IDHS Child Care Assistance

The CCDF recommends, but does not require that, in order to ensure both equal access and to allow choice by subsidy recipients, states provide subsidies at the 75th percentile of market rate. That is, within a local community, and considering rate variations by age and categories of care, subsidy levels should be set such that recipients have the ability to purchase 75 out of 100 available child care slots.

In the following tables, each cell represents a different child care market defined by license status, type of care setting, child age, and geographic region. In these analyses county is arbitrarily considered as a separate regional market. The tabled figures represent the mean percentile across all counties within a reimbursement group, weighted by the number of slots in each county. The tabled figures, as percentiles, can thus range from 0.00 (the current IDHS child care assistance rate for the given age within a given reimbursement group can buy no slots outright, i.e., the current subsidy is less than any slot in that market) to 100.00 (the current subsidy is more than the price of any slot in that market). Please note that the child care rates were collected October through December, 2007 as part of standard updating practices. The child care assistance program (CCAP) reimbursement rates to which they are compared are those that are currently in effect and were not in effect until July 1, 2008, from 6 to 9 months after data were collected. Providers may have raised their rates to keep up with the increased subsidy available to them.

From these data, several generalizations can be derived regarding the ability of the Illinois child care assistance program to cover child care prices. First, with a few exceptions, assistance rates do not tend to reach the 75th percentile recommended by the CCDF. Second, for children under 6 years of age, assistance rates provide better coverage for children in family child care homes than they do for children in child care centers. Third, within a given type of child care (center care versus family care) providers are better reimbursed within predominantly rural Group II region than in Groups IA and IB, and Group IB providers are better reimbursed than Group IA providers. Fourth, assistance rates for school-age children in before-and-after school programs tend to exceed the recommended 75th percentile while assistance rates for school-age children in summer programs tend to fall much shorter.

Introduction

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." [Bold face type added for emphasis.]

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).

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 resource and 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 coordinates and 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 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, 2007. These data were then compiled by INCCRRA and submitted for this market rate analysis.

Licensed Providers: Children 6 Weeks to 5 Years Old

Separate samples were drawn for providers providing care to children 6 weeks (the youngest child a provider may be licensed to care for is 6 weeks) to 5 years old and for those providing care to school-age children (6 to 12 years old). This section presents the analyses and results for providers serving children 6 weeks to 5 years. (Providers may provide care to either of both age groups. Thus, the samples discussed in this section and following are not mutually exclusive.)

Selection of the Market Rate Survey Sample

The December 31, 2007 INCCRRA provider database contained records for 25,784 total providers. However, inclusion in the market rate sample was limited to those providers who were:

  • Licensed, and
  • Actively providing care, and
  • Contacted during the update period and had provided updated rates, and
  • Providing care Full-Time, and
  • Providing care Full-Year (or School Year), and
  • Providing care to children 6 weeks to 5 years, and
  • Not providing "Special Categories" of care, and

Who provided during the update:

  • Full-time rate(s) for a least one age category for their primary shift, and
  • Licensed Capacity (for child care centers (CCC)) for at least one age category for their primary shift, or
  • Enrollment (for family child care (FCC)) for at least one age category for their primary shift.

Of the 25,784 total providers, 17,104 were listed as active providers at the time, with 14,078 of those being active, licensed providers. However, of these 14,078 active providers, 403 providers were listed as not providing care at the time of update, leaving 13,675 providers. (Providers who are temporarily accepting no referrals may currently not be providing child care, because for example, they are on maternity leave or medical leave, but plan to continue to provide care once the leave is completed. The reason rates are removed from these provider records is to eliminate statistical bias when calculating current local rates, since the provider is not caring for children while they are on leave. Thus, providers with the following referral status(es) were excluded from the sample: Temporary No Referrals; Keeping License - Not Providing Care; and Pending - Surrendered License.")

Of these 13,675 providers, 9239 providers were able to be contacted and completed the market rate survey update. Of these 9239 providers, 124 did not provide their rates for care. Table 2 presents the reasons providers did not provide rates.

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

Reason For No Rate Data Category Total Percent
Free program to income-eligible 27 21.8%
Call for rates - Some providers prefer to discuss rates directly with parents or believe that their rate structure is too complicated to be recorded in the CCR&R database so they ask to be called directly for rate information. 65 52.4%
Charges variable rates - Providers who have variable rate structures either negotiate rates directly with parents or use a sliding scale based on income or the parent's ability to work at the center (parent cooperatives). 28 22.6%
New provider, has not yet established rates 4 3.2%
TOTAL 124 100%

Of the 9,115 providers (9,239 minus the 124 who did not provide rates) who had completed the update and provided rates, those who were identified as providing only "School-age", "Preschool," or "Before and/or after school" care were excluded, as were providers identified as "Head Start," "Illinois State Board of Education (ISBE) Pre-Kindergarten," "Parks/Recreation Programs," and "Special Needs Child Care Centers." These exclusions resulted in 8,773 providers.

The Illinois Department of Human Services (IDHS), which oversees the Illinois market rate survey process, requires that assistance rates be based upon the daily full-time price of child care for a given market. Therefore, we further limited sample inclusion to those active providers accepting children on a full-time (or both full- and part-time) basis, and those who provided care year-round or during the school-year. (For school-age children, we also included licensed providers caring for children during summers only. As noted, those analyses are presented in a later section of this report.) Further limiting the sample to those providers who provided valid rate and enrollment (or capacity) data for at least one 6 week to 5 year-old age group for their primary shift resulted in a final sample of 7,743 unique providers, 1,350 child care centers and 6,393 family child care providers, 364 of the latter being group family care home providers. (Note: Full- versus part-time status is provided in the INCCRRA database at the shift level. NACCRRAware supports up to three shift entries; therefore, while a provider may offer more than 3 shifts, information pertaining to only 3 will appear in the database. The majority of active, licensed providers of care for children 6 weeks to 5 years reported only offering one shift.  However, complete information is required only of one shift. While rates are required to be updated and entered for all shifts (up to three) reported by providers, capacity or enrollments for each age group are only required of the day shift if reported, or of the primary shift. For this reason, market rates reflect only rates charged for one shift per provider. Shifts labeled "Session 1", "Session 2", or "Session 3" were not included in these analyses because, by definition, these are part-time shifts. Providers in the sample were also llimited to those who indicated that their shift ran 4 or more days per week and 35 or more hours per week.)

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

NACCRRAware allows child care centers to provide full-time hourly, daily, weekly, and/or monthly rates. Weekly rates were most prevalent. When daily full-time rates were provided, that rate was entered into analysis. When daily rates were not provided, weekly full-time rates were divided by 5 (days per week) and/or monthly full-time rates were divided by 20 (5 days per week, 4 weeks per month), and/or hourly full-time rates were multiplied by 10 (hours per day), to yield a calculated daily full-time rate. (Note: In the event that a center provided full-time care for 4 days per week, the denominators for calculating daily from weekly and monthly rates was based on 4, not 5, days per week. Shifts less than 4 days per week were excluded from analyses). In the event that more than one rate was calculated (e.g., if the provider reported both full-time weekly and monthly rates) but the calculated rates did not agree, the daily rate calculated from the weekly rate was given first precedence as the rate used in analyses, the daily rate calculated from the monthly rates was given second precedence, and the daily rate calculated from the hourly rate was given third precedence. (It should be noted that conversion of rates is not without it's critics.)

Rates presented 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. Arraying the rates from highest to lowest and selecting the rate that divides the array with 25 percent higher and 75 percent lower rates, reveals that $40.00 represents the 75th percentile.

Both methods of establishing market rates - calculated across providers only and weighting provider rates by slots - have their adherents. However, calculation of market rates at the provider level without regard to the varying capacities of providers in a given market has the potential to bias results, high or low, when rates and capacity are related.  On the other hand, in one study in which the two methods were compared directly, there was little difference in resulting market rates. See Grobe, E., 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 resource and referral data. Oregon Child Care Research Partnership. For this reason, market rates were calculated weighting provider rates by capacity, or number of slots, at a given rate.

NACCRRAware is able to record capacity and rate information for the following seven different 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 School (6-12 years)

Table 4 presents licensed child care center rates by age for the state of Illinois as a whole. As the table shows, on average, child care centers charge approximately $30 to $40 per day for full-time care - the younger the child, the higher the rate.

For most parents, the entire state does not constitute their child care market. However defined, child care markets are local and are represented by much more circumscribed geography. Moreover, within each geographical market there can be several market segments, two of which we have implicitly introduced already: type of care (child care center vs. family child care), and age. Therefore, there are actually many child care markets in Illinois.

Tables 5a and 5b present full-time daily child care rates for licensed child care centers by county reimbursement group by age. (Currently, Illinois divides the child care market into three reimbursement tiers, represented by groups of counties. Group IA counties consist of Cook County and six other urban counties - DeKalb, DuPage, Kane, Kendall, Lake, and McHenry - that surround it.  Eligible families in these counties receive the highest child care assistance rates in the state. Group IB is comprised of sixteen counties throughout the state, counties with at least one urban area. Eligible families in these counties - Boone, Champaign, Kankakee, Madison, McLean, Monroe, Ogle, Peoria, Rock Island, Sangmaon, St. Clair, Tazewell, Whiteside, Will, Winnebago, and Woodford - receive child care assistance at a rate below Group IA, but higher than Group II.  All other counties in Illinois, counties that are primarily rural, make up Group II. The lowest rates of child care assistance are paid in these counties (see Appendix B for the current Illinois child care assistance payment rates.) Table 5a presents daily full-time market rates for licensed child care centers by the age categories used by NACCRRAware, for children 5 and under. Table 5b presents daily full-time market rates for licensed child care centers by the current IDHS 6 weeks to 5-year-old payment categories: infants and toddlers (6 weeks through 23 months), two-year-olds (24 through 35 months), and preschoolers/fives/kindergartners (36 through 71 months). (The analysis of rates for school-age groups was conducted separately and is presented in a later section of this report). Note that not all of Illinois' 102 counties are represented in Tables 5a and 5b. Eighty nine (89) counties in the database had "Child Care Centers" that met the criteria for inclusion in the sample (this does not include before/after school only programs, Head Start/Early Head Start only programs, park/recreation only programs, Preschool For All only programs, special needs care only programs, preschool programs, or school age programs).

Additional Fees Charged

The CCR&Rs were asked as they updated their provider records to inquire whether the child care center had any other fees that they regularly charged parents besides their child care rate. As Table 6 shows, more than three-quarters of the 1350 child care centers charge a registration/application fee for their primary shift.

Availability of Care during Nonstandard Hours

Because many families work non-traditional work schedules, the availability of child care during evenings, overnight, and on weekends is an important issue in considering equal access. For this set of analyses, a given provider could be represented by more than one shift (up to three) if that provider met the inclusion criteria detailed previously. (Rate and capacity/enrollment information, however, were not considered for the analysis of nonstandard hours). The sample contained 1350 providers offering 1358 full-time shifts accepting children 6 weeks through 5 years old. Very few centers in the market rate sample reported offering full-time evening or full-time overnight shifts. Of 1350 child care centers in the sample, 32 (2.37%) had a license to provide overnight care. However, of the 1358 full-time shifts only 8 shifts were either full-time evening shifts (3 shifts) or full-time overnight shifts (5 shifts).

Licensed Family Child Care Homes

For the purpose of the present analyses, licensed family child care homes were divided into two groups: family child care home providers who had a group home license and those who do not have a license to provide group care. This section presents the market rate analysis for the 6029 licensed family child care providers who did not possess group home licenses and who provide care for children 6 weeks to 5 years of age. Table 7 is a breakdown of this sample by Illinois Child Care Resource and Referral (CCR&R) service delivery areas (SDA). The next section of this report describes those family home child care providers with group home licenses.

Full-Time Daily Licensed Family Child Care Rates

For family child care providers, daily full-time rates were calculated for each of the five NACCRRAware age categories in the same manner as rates for licensed child care centers (Rates for school-age children, ages 6 through 12, are presented in a later section of this report). Table 8 presents the full-time daily child care rates charged by licensed family child care home providers for the State of Illinois as a whole. As the table shows, compared to child care centers, family child care provider rates are not only lower overall but have a much smaller range across age category. Rates range, on average, from the low $20s for five-year olds up to the mid $20s for infants.

Additional Fees Charged

When asked whether they had any other fees that they regularly charged parents besides their child care rate, the 6029 providers reported charging the additional fees displayed in Table 10 for their primary shifts.

Availability of Care during Nonstandard Hours

While less than one quarter of the full-time licensed family child care home shifts were evening or overnight shifts, many more full-time family child care providers offered non-traditional schedules than did child care centers. Of the 6350 full-time shifts reported by the 6029 family child care home providers who provided full-time care for children 6 weeks to 5 year olds, 200 (3.15%) were full-time evening shifts, and 131 (2.06%) were full-time overnight shifts. However, one fourth of providers (24.93 %, or 1503 providers) had a license for overnight care.

Licensed Group Child Care Homes

A family child care provider may be licensed by IDCFS as a group child care home provider if no more than 16 unrelated children under the age of 12 are cared for, including the provider's children. The actual number of children is determined by the ages of the children. The caregiver may serve the maximum of 16 only if she or he has an assistant and meets a number of other IDCFS requirements. The 364 licensed group child care home providers included in the market rate sample are presented in Table 11 by SDA.

Additional Fees Charged

When asked whether they had any other fees that they regularly charged parents besides their child care rate, the 364 providers, reported charging the additional fees displayed in Table 14 for their primary shifts.

Availability of Care during Nonstandard Hours

Of the 382 full-time shifts reported by the 364 group child care home providers who provided full-time care to 6 weeks to 5 year olds, 11 (2.88%) were full-time evening shifts, and 7 (1.83%) were full-time overnight shifts. Almost 30 percent of these full-time group home providers (28.30%, or 103 providers) had an overnight license, however.

Licensed Providers: School-Age Children

Before and After School Programs

Sample selection for before and after school programs was similar to that for child care providers caring for children 6 weeks to 5 years old, with one exception. Unlike sampling child care providers (and with the summer program providers) caring for the 6 weeks to 5 year old population, selection was not dependent upon whether the provider was recorded as accepting children on a full-time or part-time basis. Providers were selected if they were recorded as accepting children before and after school. Those selected were also actively providing care, were licensed, and accepted children six years old or older. They were excluded from the sample if they indicated that they were temporarily not accepting referrals, if they provided no data for before and after school programs, if they did not report licensed capacity (for child care centers) or enrollment (for family child care homes) for before and after school programs, and if their programs were summer only programs.

These criteria resulted in a sample of 2859 licensed providers, 683 licensed child care centers, 2022 licensed family child care home providers, and 154 group child care home providers. Tables 15, 16, and 17 present the breakdown by SDA of these respective providers in the market rate sample who accept children before and after school. Table 15 presents the results for licensed child care centers; Table 16 presents the results for licensed family child care homes; and Table 17 presents the market rates for licensed child care group homes.

Availability of Care during Nonstandard Hours

For this set of analyses, a given provider could be represented by more than one shift (up to three) if that provider met the inclusion criteria detailed above for before and after school programs. Full-time/part-time status and capacity/enrollment information were not, however, considered in selecting shifts. Therefore, more providers were represented in the analysis of nonstandard hours.

Few of the 683 centers (n=20; 2.93%) held a license allowing them to care for children overnight. In terms of shifts, only 3.37 percent (n=23) of the 742 before and after school shifts for the 683 centers in the sample were evening or overnight shifts.

Family care providers are much more likely to offer nonstandard hours for their before and after school programs than are centers. Of the 2656 providers' shifts offering care to school-age children, 23.98% offer care during nonstandard hours (417 evening, 220 overnight). Slightly more (n=576; 28.49%) of the sample of 2022 family child care home providers with before and after school programs had a license for overnight care.

The 154 group child care home providers reported offering a total of 205 shifts serving school-age children. Approximately 25 percent (n=51) of those shifts offer care to school-age children during nonstandard hours. A somewhat higher percentage (29.22%; n=45) of the sample of 154 group child care home providers with before and after school programs had a license for overnight care.

Full-Time Summer Programs

During the summers, many school-age children are cared for by child care centers, family child care providers, and/or group child care home providers. These programs are typically full-time.

For the full-time school-age summer programs, sample selection was much the same as for infants through kindergarteners, but included providers who provided care during summer or summer only . This process resulted in a sample of 1020 licensed providers: 432 licensed child care centers (18 of which were "school age programs") and 588 licensed family child care providers, with 26 of the latter being group child care home providers. The breakdown by SDA of providers in the market rate sample who offer full-time school-age summer programs on their primary shift is presented in Tables 25, 26, and 27. Information about summer programs represented in other than a provider's primary shift is not reported here.

Availability of Care during Nonstandard Hours

The percentage of provider shifts that offer full-time care during the evenings or overnight for school age children in summer program were very few. Of the 433 child care center shifts, none were full-time evening (n=0) and four were overnight (.92%) shifts. Furthermore, only 4.40% (n=19) of the 429 providers had a license allowing them to care for children overnight.

Family care providers are much more likely to provide full-time care during nonstandard hours than are centers. Still, only 6.22 percent of 627 family care providers shifts offer full-time care to school-age children in summer programs during nonstandard hours, 2.89 percent (n=18) during evening hours and 3.35 percent (n=21) overnight. However, of the sample of 588 family child care home providers with full-time summer programs (excludes group homes) for children 6 to 12, 28.74 percent (n=169) had a license for overnight care.

Slightly over 7 percent (n=2) of 28 group family care provider shifts offer care to school-age children in full-time summer programs during nonstandard hours. Of the sample of 26 group child care home providers with summer programs for 6 to 12 year olds, 30.77 percent (n=8) had a license for overnight care.

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

A primary purpose of Market Rate Surveys as they are currently construed by CCDF rule is to evaluate child care assistance (i.e., subsidy) rates relative to market rates. This section will assess CCAP rates relative to child care rates in several markets in Illinois.

In the preceding, we have discussed a number of ways in which child care markets are segmented: by type of care (centers vs. homes vs. group homes), by age (children under two years of age vs. two-year-olds vs. children three to five years of age vs. children six to twelve), license status (licensed vs. license-exempt). The CCDF also encourages states to consider geographic segmentation if those segments may be associated with variations in child care rates. Currently, Illinois divides the child care market into three reimbursement tiers, represented by groups of counties. Group IA counties consist of Cook County and six other urban counties - DeKalb, DuPage, Kane, Kendall, Lake, and McHenry Counties - that surround it. Eligible families in these counties receive the highest child care assistance rates in the state. Group IB is comprised of sixteen counties throughout the state, counties with at least one urban area. Eligible families in these counties - Boone, Champaign, Kankakee, Madison, McLean, Monroe, Ogle, Peoria, Rock Island, Sangamon, St. Clair, Tazewell, Whiteside, Will, Winnebago, and Woodford - receive child care assistance at a rate below Group IA, but higher than Group II. All other counties in Illinois, counties that are primarily rural, make up Group II. The lowest rates of child care assistance are paid in these counties (See Appendix B for the current Illinois child care assistance payment rates).

Tables 35 through 43 present the maximum CCAP payment broken down by county by license status by type of care by age of child group (i.e., "market segment"). (Note: No argument is being forwarded here that counties in reality represent geographic markets. Considerable effort has been made by the author and other researchers to define the geographic areas constituting a child care market for parents seeking care. As of yet, there has been no agreement as to how to define such areas in Illinois. The choice of county as used in this report is somewhat arbitrary. In actuality, child care markets may be geographically larger or smaller within a particular area of the state, reflecting population density, child care availability, and other economic considerations. The choice of county, however, does have certain administrative value.) For each segment the 25th, 50th (i.e., median), and 75th percentiles of the market rate are presented.

The final column "CCAP Percentile" presents the approximate percentile that the maximum CCAP payment (as of July 1, 2008) represents segment within a given market. (NOTE: Rates were raised July 1, 2008, 6-9 months after the collection of the child care price data. Providers may have raised their rates to keep up with the increased subsidy available.) For example, a percentile of 64.00 means that if cost alone is the determining factor for a parent choosing a particular child program, the CCAP subsidy (offered in a given county for care of a child of a given age by a given type of provider) will allow that parent to purchase a slot from among the 64 percent least expensive slots in that market. A 0.00 CCAP Percentile means that the CCAP maximum subsidy for that segment is less than the minimum rate charged for that segment; the subsidy alone can purchase no slots within the market. Similarly, a 100.00 CCAP Percentile means that the CCAP maximum is greater than the maximum - the most expensive - slot in the market and that the maximum CCAP subsidy can purchase any slot in the 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.

These Child Care Assistance Program (CCAP) rates went into effect July 1, 2008, 6 to 9 months after the child care rate data were collected.

The percentage of rates in a given market that fall at or below the CCAP maximum rate. Therefore, a percentile of 0.00 means that the CCAP maximum subsidy is LESS than the MINIMUM rate for the given market. Similarly, a percentile of 100.00 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.

These Child Care Assistance Program (CCAP) rates went into effect July 1, 2008, 6 to 9 months after the child care rate data were collected.

The percentage of rates in a given market that fall at or below the CCAP maximum rate. Therefore, a percentile of 0.00 means that the CCAP maximum subsidy is LESS than the MINIMUM rate for the given market. Similarly, a percentile of 100.00 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.

These Child Care Assistance Program (CCAP) rates went into effect July 1, 2008, 6 to 9 months after the child care rate data were collected.

The percentage of rates in a given market that fall at or below the CCAP maximum rate. Therefore, a percentile of 0.00 means that the CCAP maximum subsidy is LESS than the MINIMUM rate for the given market. Similarly, a percentile of 100.00 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.

These Child Care Assistance Program (CCAP) rates went into effect July 1, 2008, 6 to 9 months after the child care rate data were collected.

The percentage of rates in a given market that fall at or below the CCAP maximum rate. Therefore, a percentile of 0.00 means that the CCAP maximum subsidy is LESS than the MINIMUM rate for the given market. Similarly, a percentile of 100.00 means that the CCAP maximum subsidy is MORE than the MAXIMUM rate for the given market.

Appendix C: License-Exempt Child Care Rates

Data collected from those license-exempt child care providers who voluntarily chose to be listed with their local CCR&Rs are included in the following tables. For family child care homes, these represent a small fraction of all license-exempt providers in the state. The number of centers listed is greater, providing somewhat more data. It is not known to what extent however, these providers and/or their rates represent the population of license-exempt providers.

Rates for children 3 to 5 years of age in child care centers are presented in Table 1. Rates for children 6 weeks to 5 years of age in family child care homes are presented in Table 2. Rates for children 6 to 12 years of age in child care center summer programs are presented in Table 3. Too little data for school-age summer programs in family child care homes and before and after-school programs in homes and centers were collected to conduct reliable analyses.
