Learn about the Local Early Education Planning Council of Santa Clara County
The LPC of Santa Clara County is a 30-member Council who represent various categories within the early learning field. Learn more about LPC Membership and how to become an LPC Member.
The LPC has a membership of 30 individuals from 5 categories: Parents/Child Care Consumers, Child Care Providers, Public Agency representatives, Community Representatives, and Public/Discretionary Members (descriptions are noted below). Committee Members serve three-year terms. All LPC meetings are open to the public.
Additionally, each LPC member serves on at least 1 LPC sub-committee: Communications & Outreach, Workforce, Data, the Inclusion Collaborative, or the Title 5 Providers Group (NOTE: For this committee, you will have to be a state subsidized child care contractor).
Each of the 5 categories represented on the LPC has 6 positions.
Much of the work of the LPC is achieved through our Committees & Associate Committees, as described below. All LPC Members must serve on at least one Committee, though membership to the Committees is open to anyone who is interested. Please contact LPC staff if you are interested in joining an LPC Committee or Associate Committee. Visit the meeting page for the LPC and subcommittee meeting schedule.
The Workforce Committee actively supports training, mentoring, and workforce retention programs that improve teacher qualifications and teacher effectiveness.
The Communications & Outreach Committee shares information about the state of early care and education in Santa Clara County with a variety of stakeholders, including families, providers, teachers, policymakers, and the general public.
The Data Committee collects, analyzes and shares data relative to the mandates of the LPC, and provides a foundation upon which the LPC can make informed decisions relative to child care funding and expansion.
The group is charged with problem solving and planning for the stabilization of CDE child care to make the most of CDE subsidized child care monies countywide. Additionally, the goal of the group is to advocate for quality improvement, access, and partnerships among state subsidized child care providers in Santa Clara County. Finally, the group serves all state subsidized child care providers through networking and sharing resources.
Note*: Membership is reserved to those who operate a Title 5 State Subsidized Child Care Program in Santa Clara County.
