The LPC is tasked with assessing the local, county-wide needs of early learning and care. The data is organized by zip code and by age of child from zero to 12 years. This includes but is not limited to:
California State Preschool Program (CSPP)
CalWORKs Stage 1, 2, and 3 programs
General Child Care, center-based child care (CCTR)
Family Child Care Home Education Networks (CFCC)
Migrant Child Care, center-based child care (CMIG)
Severely Handicapped Program (CHAN)
Alternative Payment Programs (CAPP)
The available data is downloaded from the American Institutes for Research, Early Learning Needs Assessment Tool (ELNAT) and is accessed by the LPC Coordinators in each county across the state of CA. AIR ELNAT uses data from the U.S. Census Bureau, the California Departments of Education and Social Services, and Head Start agencies. 
Those interested in reviewing current data reports may access the LPC Child Care and Development Needs Assessment Report. This report was completed on October 1, 2021, and is updated every 5-years. Both the County Superintendent of Schools and the County Board of Supervisors have reviewed and approved this report. 
The San Diego County community has access to multiple data sources. Some of the publicly available data sources, that LPC finds useful, are from the California Department of Education and the California Department of Social Services. Watch the video below to learn more about how this data can help schools find nearby child care sites, to ensure full-day care for their transitional kindergarten (TK) students.
California school districts have been tasked with developing a UPK Plan. The UPK planning template addresses the need to layer programs to achieve full-day programming for four-year-old children. The California Department of Education (CDE) recommends that districts outreach and engage with their LPC and existing extended learning and care providers operating within the district’s enrollment attendance boundary. Creating a map of schools and child care sites within each district will help school personnel identify nearby extended learning and care providers. These partnerships are key to achieving full-day care programming and meeting the needs of families.
The Barbara Chernofsky Lifetime Achievement Award is presented by the San Diego County Child Care and Development Planning Council to individuals who demonstrate exceptional leadership, passion, and commitment in the field of Child Development in San Diego County. Nominees are lifetime contributors to the child care community.
