    How do you envision a partnership between the states and FCCH in providing ECE to all children? Is this something that you want to help with?

    Hello from the preschool doctor,
    I will help you.
    I have designed some approaches to the idea of universal preschool.

    Oh my, the AEYC position statement on AB 22 points to the imminent wrecking ball coming if not amended.  Of COURSE preschool should be free and paid for from gov't funding, but "mixed delivery" (e.g., inclusive of from FCCHs) is needed.  Every 4 year old (and then 3 year olds) can't and shouldn't be served on elementary school campuses.  We need to all be at the table in the planning of universal preschool.
