Share Your Priorities for Early Care and Education Funding - and enter to win a $50 Target gift card!

The San Francisco Office of Early Care and Education (OECE) wants to hear from families, parents, caregivers and early care and education (ECE) professionals!  The City is aware of many unmet needs for child care and preschool services, and wants to do more to support young children and their families.

On June 5, 2018, the voters of San Francisco passed Proposition C to create funding for the Early Care and Education for All Initiative. It could provide an estimated $121 million annually in new funding to support and improve access to quality ECE for children ages 0-5 in San Francisco.* (To learn more about the Proposition C: Early Care and Education for All Initiative, please visit our webpage.)

As the City plans to invest more resources, we want your help to shape the spending priorities for early care and education in San Francisco. Please take this brief survey to share your thoughts and ideas with us. The survey has a total of 17 questions (8 optional) and will take less than ten minutes to complete.

Thank you in advance for sharing your ideas on how to improve the lives of San Francisco’s young children, families and early care and education professionals!

*Please note: Given a pending legal challenge against Prop C and the potential that an adverse result could lead to refunds of taxes paid, the San Francisco Controller’s Office has indicated that any funds collected cannot be spent until the lawsuit is settled. Ideas and strategies generated from the planning process will help identify how San Francisco’s early care and education systems can improve to better meet the needs of families and professionals, with whatever resources are available.
