The Office for Early Childhood which oversees child care centers including after school programs has two different, but both vitally important, opportunities for you to provide feedback:

  1. Draft Licensing Regulations: Some big changes on these including to head teacher certification
  2. Child Care Development Fund Plan 2019-2021: Concerns Care4Kids and also state investment in quality and professional development, although very little to date has been spent on school age quality supports. There are also three public hearings on 5/15 and 5/17 if you’d rather go in person.
