The Countywide Needs Assessment on Early Learning and Care is a study implemented every five years to:
• Identify gaps and opportunities
• Guide strategies and investments
• Inform the development of a 5-year comprehensive countywide Child Care Master Plan

Our 2018-2019 Needs Assessment was finalized in March 2019. Click here to access it. 

Our Master Plans are updated every five years through a community-wide needs assessment, followed by a county-wide strategic plan for child care services. The results are published in the Commission’s Master Plan, which guides the recommendations to policymakers and other decision-makers for the promotion of quality child care and development services in the County.
