The Child Care Partnership Council

The San Mateo County Child Care Partnership Council is a state-mandated local council under joint auspices of the San Mateo County Board of Supervisors and the San Mateo County Superintendent of Schools. 

The council:

  • Identifies local priorities for child care and early learning services and develops policies and strategies to meet the priorities
  • Provides a community venue to examine the impact of state and federal child care and family policies and proposed legislation or regulation
  • Makes decisions on the local distribution of state child care funding
  • Conducts a mandated community-wide needs assessment, followed by a county-wide strategic plan for child care services for all children, every five years

Child Care and Early Learning Needs Assessment for San Mateo County:

The CCPC is seeking responses from qualified consultants, agencies, individuals and/or firms that are interested in completing one or more components of the child care and early learning needs assessment for San Mateo County. This study seeks to identify supply gaps in child care and early learning (including family child care, informal care, and center-based care) by zip code, for children ages birth to 12; understand the cost and affordability of care; understand key characteristics of children, families, and early educators; identify trends in the supply and quality of care; and share key findings that will inform priority setting and community planning for how to use public resources to support child care and early learning in the county. Responses to the “Request for Quotations” are due by 5pm on January 14, 2022. Please submit to skinahan@smcoe.org and ijohnson@smcoe.org.
