Early Learning Facilities Needs Assessment

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.

Facility Design and Maintenance Resources

Designing and maintaining healthy and safe conditions in child care and early education facilities is important for child and staff health and program sustainability. Neglected conditions can lead to health problems, accidents and much higher costs for repair and renovation of buildings and grounds. Also, new research is identifying environmental hazards that can be avoided by use of proper practices and materials. The following resources were developed and compiled by the CCPC to support the design and maintenance of child care facilities.
