Established by an act of the State Legislature in 1991, the Local Early Education Planning Council (LPC) is a collaborative association of representatives from the early care and education field, including parents, child care providers, businesses, and government. A joint committee of board members from the Santa Clara County Board of Supervisors and Santa Clara County Board of Education oversees the Council.
The Council brings together parents, community members, government representatives, and child care providers to:
- assess local child care needs
- set local priorities for use of state and federal funds
- affect public policy decisions regarding early education and before & after school programs
Every Child a Learner — Every Teacher a Professional — Every Family Connected
The Mission of the LPC is to assess, represent, and promote the early care and education needs of children and families in Santa Clara County.
