Budget Conference Committee Approves Early Childhood Budget Agreement

The light continues to shine on the importance of early care/education for the 0-5 age population.  The budget conference committee approved a budget of $264 million that will be used to build, enhance, and improve existing programs and expand access to low-income families, as well as implementing new quality standards for our Transitional Kindergarten programs, which teachers of that program must meet education and work experience requirements by 2020.

Fair Start will begin in the 2014-2015 school year providing Governor Brown signs the budget by June 30th.  This is great news for the Early Education field!
