Early Care and Education providers who have OECE funding agreements are required to use the following two data systems– COCOA & The California Workforce Registry.

COCOA is the daily attendance tracking and enrollment data system for providers receiving Early Learning Scholarship City-(Reserved), Moderate, Gap on Title 5 funding or Preschool for All funding from the SF Office of Early Care and Education. COCOA holds information on enrolled children and provider sites that is used to calculate OECE payments to providers, can help providers save time with daily attendance, and can generate required forms for state and federal reporting.

The California Workforce Registry is designed to track and promote the education, training and experience of the early care and education workforce. Participation in the California Workforce Registry is required for ELS providers, but all San Francisco providers and early care and education professionals are encouraged to join the registry.
