About the Council

The mission of the Local Planning Council (LPC) is to actively plan for quality child care based upon the needs of children, families and early care and education professionals. 

The Council was formed in 1991, in accordance with state law established by Assembly Bill 2141. The creation of the Council was for the purpose of identifying local child care priorities and developing policies to fulfill those priorities.

The Council is comprised of 25 members who represent consumers of child care services, child care providers, community and public agencies, and child care advocates. Members are appointed by the County Board of Supervisors and Ventura County Superintendent of Schools. The California Department of Education provides funding for the work of the council, which includes the following:
  • Conducts local needs assessment
  • Establishes local priorities for child care funding
  • Develop county-wide strategic plan
  • Facilitate the temporary and voluntary transfer of funds between State funded agencies

The Local Planning Council meets the second Tuesday of the month and meetings are open to the public. 

Council Meeting Dates and Times Please note dates, times, and locations are subject to change.
