Report to be Released on the State of Early Child Care and Education in San Francisco

Organization’s report shows San Francisco is a model in providing preschool subsidies, but more progress is needed to meet families’ young child care needs, as well as workforce investments that are necessary to retain quality early educators               

WHAT:         

The San Francisco Child Care Planning and Advisory Council (CPAC), a state-mandated organization that studies and advocates for a system of quality, affordable and accessible early care and education services in the city, will release its much anticipated community needs assessment on Thursday, May 31.

The report will highlight that although great progress has been made in recent years in offering subsidized high quality education to preschool-aged children, there are still significant unmet needs for licensed centers and family child care homes that serve infants and toddlers. In addition, critical workforce investments are required to retain quality early education teachers.
