Early Learning Facilities Needs Assessment

At a Glance

San Mateo County Human Services Agency, First 5 San Mateo County, and the Child Care Partnership Council partnered to conduct an Early Learning Facilities Needs Assessment for children 0 to 5 years old. The lack of early learning facilities presents a significant barrier to expanding access to high quality early learning experiences for children in San Mateo County. The County engaged Brion Economics in 2016 to conduct the study.
