We need your help to ensure that all of San Diego County’s children in their first five years of life get the kind of high-quality early care and education experiences they need to do well in school and beyond.

We invite you to participate in the following ways:

  • Contact us to invest in supporting SDQPI’s rating and improvement efforts to enhance and sustain high quality for children ages 0-5;
  • Contact us to sponsor the cost for a local early care education provider to receive a rating and/or related quality improvement support;
  • Volunteer in an early learning program, especially as a member of an advisory committee or board of directors;
  • Apply to participate in the Local Child Care and Development Planning Council to participate in developing early care and education strategies that meet local needs; and
  • Talk with friends, neighbors and other community members about the impact high quality early learning environments have on local schools, neighborhoods and workforces.
