History & Mission
Established in July of 1995 by the Board of Supervisors, the Child Care Commission serves an advisory role to help direct policy by making suggestions and recommendations to local elected policymakers and government management. The main goals of the commission are:
Identify common ground on issues
Indicate program priority preference
Provide input on existing and proposed public programs
Meetings are open to the public and are held on the first Tuesday of every other month, usually from 3 to 5pm. Most of the meetings are held at the Marin County Office of Education - 1111 Las Gallinas Ave., San Rafael.
Agendas and Minutes
Membership on the Commission is by appointment and is open to individuals interested in fostering the availability of high quality, affordable early care and education services throughout Marin County.
The identification of local priorities for child care and early learning services is primarily implemented 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 for the promotion of quality child care and development services in the County.
