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
The Commission acts as the state-mandated Local Child Care and Development Planning Council (LPC), planning for child care and development services based on the needs of families in the local community.
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.

Master Plans
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.
