The San Francisco Child Care Planning and Advisory Council (CPAC) is San Francisco’s local child care planning council. Early care and education (ECE) stakeholders appointed by the Board of Education and the Board of Supervisors are charged with advising policy makers, funders and planners regarding the coordination and needs of early care and education in San Francisco. Education Code 8499.5 requires local child care planning councils to conduct a Needs Assessment every five years.
The 2017 San Francisco Early Care and Education Needs Assessment provides important updated information for legislators, planners, advocates, budget staff, ECE programs, community members and organizations, and City residents regarding the availability of licensed early care and education and out of school time services, the availability of ECE subsidies for those who are eligible, and the indications of unmet need for subsidies by age group and neighborhood/zip code.
