The Child Care Partnership Council

The San Mateo County Child Care Partnership Council (CCPC) is a state-mandated local council under the shared leadership 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
  • Develops policies and strategies to meet the priorities
  • Provides a community venue to look at impacts of state and federal child care policies and proposed legislation or regulations
  • Makes recommendations on the local distribution of state child care funding
  • Conducts a community-wide needs assessment, followed by a county-wide strategic plan for child care for all children, every five years

The Child Care Partnership Council currently has two membership vacancies – one (1) “public agency representative” and one (1) “community representative.” 

  • Public Agency Representatives: persons who represent government organizations, such as city or county employees or school district staff.
  • Community Representatives: persons who represent an agency or business that provides private funding for child care services or who advocate for child care services through participation in civic or community-based organizations, but are not child care providers and do not represent agencies that contract with the California Department of Education or California Department of Social Services to provide child care and development services.

Council membership also requires that members either live or work in San Mateo County. The terms for these vacancies will be:

  • Public Agency Representative – July 1, 2024 to June 30, 2028
  • Community Representative – October 1, 2024 to September 30, 2028

Applications are due by July 31.

 We are seeking candidates who bring skills and experience to contribute to one or more of our strategic goals:

  • Goal 1: The early care and education infrastructure in San Mateo County is sustainably funded, improved, and aligned with other sectors serving children and families.
  • Goal 2: Families of all socioeconomic levels have access to high-quality child care birth through age 13.
  • Goal 3: Every child thrives socially, emotionally, and academically because they receive quality early care, education and/or after-school programs.
  • Goal 4: San Mateo County has a robust, well-trained and well-paid early care and education (ECE) professional workforce with the competencies necessary to provide high-quality ECE experiences for children.
