Early Childhood Policy Matters


A Master Plan for Early Learning and Care in California

Ep. 11

In this episode, two early childhood leaders in California discuss the development of their Master Plan for Early Learning and Care. The master plan created a roadmap that put into action past recommendations and research about the benefits of quality early learning and care, and includes five substantive issue areas within California’s early learning and care system: access, quality, universal pre-kindergarten, facilities, and financing.

Host Howard Morrison (SRI Education) talks with Kris Perry, deputy secretary for Early Childhood Development with the California Health and Human Services Agency, and senior advisor to Governor Gavin Newsom; and Lupe Jaime-Mileham, deputy director for the Childcare and Development Division at the California Department of Social Services.

Early Childhood Policy Matters is supported by the National Technical Assistance Center for Preschool Development Grants Birth through Five, funded by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Administration for Children and Families, Office of Child Care.
