San Francisco stakeholders are committed to creating a seamless and coherent early care and education system for San Francisco’s children and families. Extensive efforts to increase access to early education for all families, but particularly for low-income families and children at risk, and to assess and improve quality, have been undertaken over the past twelve years in San Francisco. Developing a system requires explicit efforts to bring coherence to the relationships between various financing mechanisms and revenue sources, and the programs, services, and infrastructure that require funding. In San Francisco, ECE stakeholders have worked together to resolve these long standing issues and to streamline the system into a cohesive whole that maximizes investments while maintaining a focus on quality.
