Affordability, availability & accessibility to quality services

The early care and education of young children has been identified as critical to their future development. The California Legislature has designated Local Child Care Planning Councils as the mandated groups responsible for needs assessment, service priority identification, and development of policies and activities to meet identified needs. The primary mission is to plan for child care and development services for children from birth to age fourteen, based on the needs of families, building on the distinct strengths of each community. Each council has members representative of the communities they serve.
