Monterey County Local Planning Council
Child Care Planning Council
The mission of the Monterey County Child Care Planning Council is to create a comprehensive, integrated child care delivery system that offers safe, high quality, culturally sensitive, affordable child care to Monterey County families who need it; a system that allows parental choice and is supported by strong partnerships with public and private resources.
Who We Are
Established by an act of the State Legislature in 1991, the Local Child Care Planning Council (LPC) is a collaborative association of representatives from the early care and education field, including parents, child care providers, non-profit, and government agencies.
The primary mission of the Local Child Care Council (LPC) is to plan for child care and development services based on the needs of families in the local community. Under the direction of the California State Department of Social Services, each county in California has a designated LPC.
The purpose of the Monterey County Child Care Planning Council is to support a comprehensive, integrated child care delivery system that offers safe, high quality, culturally sensitive, affordable child care to Monterey County families who need it; that allows parental choice; and is supported by a partnership of public and private resources.
These meetings, as well as all standing committee meetings conducted by the Local Child Care Planning Council,
are governed by The Brown Act and are open to the public.
Meetings are run using Robert's Rule of Order.
Additional meetings may be scheduled as ‘Special Meetings’ needed.
All meetings will be properly noticed and are open to the public.
An agenda will be sent out and posted three days before each meeting.
If you would like to add an agenda item, please email or call the Monterey County LPC coordinator.Laurie M. Ramirez, Ph.D LPC Coordinator Monterey County Office of Education 901 Blanco Circle. Salinas, CA 93912 (831) 784-4141 firstname.lastname@example.org
Funded by the California Department of Education (CDE) and administered by the Monterey County LPC, the QCC Workforce Pathways grant serves to build a more effective statewide early childhood workforce. As the state invests more in quality improvements, including workforce development, it will continue to align and build a stronger system.
The purpose of the QCC Workforce Pathways Grant is to support increased learning and healthy development of California's young children by increasing the number of qualified ELC professionals and increasing the educational credentials, knowledge, and competencies of existing ELC professionals across the state.
In Monterey County, the QCC Workforce Pathways Grant will support the following activities:
- Supports for Dual Language Learners (DLL)
- Higher Education Stipends
