The Week of the Young Child is a time to recognize that we are all responsible for enhancing children’s opportunities.
During this week, we'll highlight our commitment to ensuring that every child has access to enriching experiences at home, at child care, at school, and in the community that promote their early learning and a lifetime of success. Budget cuts to services for children and families stunt children’s learning and growth, and prevent families from working and contributing to California’s economy. Without affordable, high-quality early care and education services, it is difficult for parents to work, go to school, or attend job training. San Francisco’s families deserve increased access to high-quality early childhood programs in order to provide for their families and maintain self-sufficiency.
