California Develops Comprehensive Early Learning Plan

Jan 9, 2016

The California Comprehensive Early Learning Plan identifies how California can develop a high-quality birth-to-age-five system that provides all children with the knowledge and skills they need to achieve long-term success.

Several stakeholders from across the state, including parents, early childhood professionals, state and local agency representatives, higher education faculty, and ZERO TO THREE Western Office staff, provided input to the plan. The recommendations contained in the CCELP were also informed by a meta-analysis of existing early childhood services that was conducted last year.
