The San Francisco Child Care Planning and Advisory Council (CPAC) creates and drives the early care and education agenda to meet the needs of San Francisco's children and their families.


Through equal access to safe, stimulating and nurturing early care and education environments, San Francisco's children and families of all cultural identities, economic backgrounds and special needs will thrive emotionally, intellectually and physically.



CPAC advocates for a broad system of quality, affordable and accessible early care and education services throughout San Francisco, with a mandate from the state to focus on low-income and at-risk children and families.
