Children and their families deserve access to affordable and reliable early learning and care options that promote whole-child development and support family well-being. Moving toward a mixed early-learning delivery system can help make this a reality for California families.
Join the California Budget & Policy Center to learn more about the state’s current early learning system and how policymakers can strengthen the workforce and support a transition to a mixed-delivery system that better supports whole-child development.
Participants will hear from researchers, advocates, and providers about their efforts to build affordable and reliable early learning and care services that meet each family’s unique needs.
What is a Mixed-Delivery System?
A mixed-delivery system is a combination of programs, providers, and settings that allow families to choose the option that best meets their needs, such as the location, hours, and curriculum.
