Recommendations to the proposed legislation SB 837
This is what SCTRC members are saying:
1. Continue to invest in existing child care systems that provide quality care and education
2. Increase funding and support for existing programs
3. Build on and strengthen our existing EESD (formerly CDD) programs. We are the experts in 4 year olds. We have the resources for 4 year olds (the Foundations, Frameworks, Assessment Tools). We ensure that 4 year old learn in developmentally appropriate environments with qualified staff. This bill is the heart of what we do and have been doing, and it will eliminate our California
State Preschool funding.
