Children’s Council of San Francisco is committed to advocating with local, state and federal policy-makers on a full range of budget and policy issues related to early care and education.

Built on the foundation of our mission and in alignment with our 5-year strategic plan, this agenda will serve as a guide for our advocacy work through fiscal year 2026. Thank you to all of the community members for your input and guidance.

We believe that all children deserve access to quality early care and education. Together with a broad coalition of community partners, Children’s Council advocates for affordable quality child care and increased, livable wages for early educators.
