Case Study: A Multi-Sector Approach to Closing the Facility Shortage Gap
In 2015, California’s San Mateo County identified a tremendous shortage of high-quality early learning facilities, which impacted children of all ages and income levels. This facility shortage led to the region’s inability to expand access to early childhood education programs. As a result, San Mateo County started to work towards a solution. Using lessons learned, Build Up for San Mateo County’s Children was established to improve the supply of childcare facilities that include high-quality infant and toddler care and increase the overall availability of childcare for children birth to five in San Mateo County.
