The Riverside County Early Care and Education Facility Pipeline Map is maintained by First 5 Riverside County through its Build Up Riverside County initiative, a coordinated effort with the Low Income Investment Fund (LIIF), Riverside County Office of Education, and other local partners to create and improve early care and education (ECE) facilities countywide. Build Up Riverside County prepares ECE operators to complete infrastructure projects, leverages the expertise of community development partners, and builds local government capacity to support ECE facilities by streamlining funding and developing supportive policies. For more information on Build Up Riverside, visit the initiative’s website:

Build Up Riverside County

The Facility Pipeline Map seeks to inform County and City policy and funding decisions, geographically display need for ECE infrastructure investments, and facilitate partnerships with developers and other entities seeking to partner or co-locate with child care programs. The map is available through the Build Up Riverside County website and is also embedded below.

Using the Map

ECE Pipeline Map Legend

Click on the options on the menu available on the left of the map to show the following:

Legend: Displays color-coded icons for ECE facility types

Details: Project background and summary

Layers: The map is comprised of various layers to show a wide-range of available information Layers may be toggled on or off depending on the information needed to be displayed.

Info: Information available for specific ECE sites.

Basic Features

The map features several layers that allows users to search for ECE providers  throughout Riverside County by type and location as well as many other factors including geographic, population, and licensing data.

The first layer of the map displays ECE providers  color-coded by type, which include:

  • Family Child Care Home
  • Child Care Center
  • School Age Child Care Center
  • Infant Center
  • Child Care Center - ILL Center

Clicking on individual sites pulls up additional information including licensed capacity and contact information. Family Child Care Home Providers who serve 8 children or less are not shown in the first layer as address-level is not publicly available for these facilities. However, they are listed in an additional layer that shows zip code data only and not specific addresses. 

Advanced Features

Most of the analysis in the mapping tool comes through  the Zip Code Analysis function, which can be toggled on and off using the layer option.

In this layer, users can view individual zip codes as well as demographic and ECE data for geographic areas. Additionally, users can compare data for the whole county or across various zip codes.

Lastly, users can interact with affordable housing data, various county and city boundaries, and environmental indicators to further assess the ECE suppl and pipelines. These features are especially beneficial to development partners and county departments in streamlining ECE facility projects.
