Introducing the new Early Learning Scholarship (ELS)!

On July 1, 2017 the Office of Early Care and Education launched San Francisco’s new Early Learning Scholarship Program (ELS). The ELS provides eligible San Francisco families who have children 0-5 years old with financial assistance to pay for quality early care and education. More than 320 Early Care and Education Centers and Family Child Care Homes across San Francisco have been qualified to participate in this exciting new program that prioritizes quality and continuity of care, supports the ECE workforce, and ensures that San Francisco’s youngest children, especially those who have the most to gain from participating, have access to high-quality early care and education. 

Learn more about ELS here.
