Week of the Young Child
April 1, 2024 - April 5, 2024
ECESF has previously organized the Walk Around the Block during the Week of the Young Child to ensure our elected leaders’ attention is on ECE providers. This spring we’re working as part of the SF ECE Advocacy Coalition to bring San Francisco’s supervisors to your site. We invite you to join with other ECE sites to ensure our elected leaders know the current state of Early Care & Education since the pandemic and the rollout of Prop C!
What’s the plan for site visits?
The SF ECE community invites district supervisors to come see what we do. This is an opportunity to highlight the beneficial impacts of increased funds to the SF ECE system (Prop C)—as well as the work still to be done, including improvements to workplace conditions, professional and education pathways, and other things your site is experiencing including impacts of COVID and the TK/UPK rollout. We’re looking to visit two sites (targeting one center and one Family Child Care site) in each of San Francisco’s 11 districts—a total of at least 22 sites over a two- to three-week period around the Week of the Young Child (this year April 2-8). We may involve more sites if we have a “special” tour for the Mayor and/or state-elected leaders.
Let us know your interest in having your site visited by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include the SF district of your site(s) and/or your site address.
