Los Angeles County Child Care Planning Committee 2017 Needs Assessment

OVERVIEW 

The early years of a child’s development lays the foundation for success in school. According to Harvard’s Center on the Developing Child, 700 to 1,000 new neural connections form every second in the first few years of a child’s life. To support this critical time in a child’s early learning and development, it is essential for families to have access to high-quality early care and education programs. The State of Early Care and Education in Los Angeles County: Los Angeles County Child Care Planning Committee 2017 Needs Assessment explores the resources and gaps in the early care and education system that serves young children and their families in L.A. County. This report focuses on three essential components of the early care and education system: Access to early care and education; Quality in early care and education; and the early care and education Workforce

The report was produced as a partnership between the Los Angeles County Child Care Planning Committee, the Los Angeles County Office for the Advancement of Early Care and Education (formally known as the Los Angeles County Office of Child Care) and First 5 LA. >> Click here to read the rest of the publication
