The San Mateo County Early Learning and Teacher Stipend Program

The San Mateo County Early Learning and Care Teacher Stipend Program (formerly known as the AB 212 Teacher Stipend) is primarily funded through a grant from the California Department of Social Services (CDSS) and is administered by the Early Learning Support Services Department at the San Mateo County Office of Education. It is an incentive program designed to encourage early childhood education teachers working in San Mateo County to pursue education and training, and to remain in the field of early childhood education.
