New buildings are needed in order to provide early education to more of California’s children. California legislators have approved over $700 million in the past two years to expand or renovate preschool and kindergarten buildings. This study looks at efforts to build new preschool centers or renovate classrooms in four counties: San Diego, San Francisco, Fresno, and Contra Costa. The authors recommend that the Master Plan for Early Learning and Care target counties and neighborhoods with fewer early education programs, and that the state offer incentives to builders and cities to include preschool centers in new developments, partner with financial intermediaries to design facilities, encourage school districts to provide more preschool programs, and make it easier for community-based organizations to purchase facilities.
