On January 23, the Learning Policy Institute released Building an Early Learning System that Works: Next Steps for California. This new report complements the Learning Policy Institute’s earlier report on early care and education (ECE), Understanding California’s Early Care and Education System, which provides a comprehensive overview of the state’s ECE system. The earlier report found that California’s ECE system is complex and fragmented, and fails to provide hundreds of thousands of children with the quality early learning experiences they need.

CFCCN is  making flyers available about language exemptions for the Mandated Reporter Training that is required per AB 1207.  We decided that we should be proactive and make sure providers know that they may be exempt from the requirement to take the training.  People who have difficulty understanding English are not required to take the training if it only available in English.  Oscar Tang, our Asian Outreach Chair developed a flyer in Chinese and in English with the help of the Child Care Law Center.  Yessika Magdalen, our Hispanic Outreach Chair translated the flyer into Spanish.
