Orange County Child Care and Development Planning Council (LPC)


It is the intent of the California Legislature, that local child care and development planning councils (LPCs) shall provide a forum for the identification of local priorities for child care and the development of policies to meet the needs identified within those priorities (EC Section 8499.3). It is further the intent of the Legislature, that communities implement new programs or initiatives, connect with existing program strategies, and build upon existing local collaboratives, when possible, to provide a unified integrated system of service for children and families (EC 54744).​

The Orange County Child Care and Development Planning Council is comprised of approximately 40 members representing child care consumers,  child care providers, public agencies, and community representatives. Members are appointed by the Orange County Board of Supervisors and Orange County Superintendent of Schools.
