Child Care Historical Annual Reports

The Division of Early Care and Education Annual Report: Early Care and Education in Wisconsin summarizes data related to children and families supported by programs in the Wisconsin Department of Children and Families’ Division of Early Care and Education (DECE). This report highlights information about regulated child care programs serving Wisconsin families and the activities throughout the Division that support program quality improvement, fraud reduction, and improved access to affordable high-quality child care.

Note: DCF/DECE no longer produces or publishes annual reports. 2018 was the last year that an annual report was produced and published.
