Council Meetings and Memberships
Local Child Care and Development Planning Council
Each county in California has a Local Child Care and Development Planning Council. Tulare County's Council has a maximum of 25 members from five different categories. The members are jointly appointed by the Tulare County Superintendent of Schools and the Tulare County Board of Supervisors, and the membership categories consist of parents, child care providers, public agency representatives, community representatives, and discretionary representatives.
If you are interested in becoming a member of the Council, please email Samantha Terry at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Council on Child & Youth Development conducts a needs assessment every five years and determines the priorities for child care services based on the needs assessment and current data for children ages birth through age 12.
