At Children’s Council of San Francisco, we are committed to making quality child care and early education a reality for all families. Parents need child care so that they can work, support their families, and advance professionally. Children need quality early education so that they are prepared for school and beyond.

Our 100+ staff help San Francisco families understand and navigate their options and find child care that meets their needs. We help lower income families secure financial assistance to pay for care and connect them with other community services to support their well-being. Each year we provide services to over 15,000 families.

We also endeavor to increase the availability of quality child care in San Francisco by helping people start and operate financially sustainable child care businesses and develop their skills as early educators. And, along with our local and statewide partners, we educate the community and advocate for increased investment in child care and early education.

Children’s Council has an $80 million annual budget ($11 million operating plus $69 million in pass-through payments to child care providers), with most of the funding coming through state and local government contracts.
