An important responsibility of the Local Early Education Planning Council (LPC) is to support the training needs and retention of Title 5 State Subsidized Child Care Providers. Since 2000, AB 212 funds have been allocated by the California Department of Education – Early Learning and Care Division to the LPC annually for child care staff retention activities, to retain qualified staff who work directly with children in state-subsidized, center-based programs.

The LPC, led by the Workforce sub-committee and in partnership with the Title 5 Providers group, develops a countywide plan in accordance with approved guidelines and submit these plans to the California Department of Education for review and approval. The funds are intended to supplement, not supplant, existing efforts and investments to retain qualified child care staff at the local level and to promote best practices that foster quality early childhood education.

The LPC is proud to support both the Quality Matters Stipend Program as well as training for Title 5 State Subsidized Child Care Providers. For more information, please click on the links below, or contact Giang Le, Early Learning Services Specialist with the LPC at (408) 453-4331.
