We envision a network in the Monterey Bay area that acts on behalf of and in collaboration with this region building a strong, inclusive organization with a state and national voice, that creates opportunities inviting all early care and education partners to share ideas and learn from one another. Similar to the natural beauty, the agriculture and peoples, we envision a time when we celebrate a sense of abundance in early care and education as professionals, as families and as children in the present and in the future.


Calling all volunteers! The Central Coast Chapter needs your help, energy, and love.

We are currently training volunteers for committee work. There are committee positions available for the newsletter, conferences, accreditation, public policy, and membership.

Thank You!
