Child Care and Development Fund State Plan
Oct. 1, 2015, to Sept. 30, 2018

CDE
On Nov. 19, 2014, the Child Care and Development Block Grant was reauthorized. The Child Care and Development Fund is a component of the block grant. Every three years, the federal government requires states, territories and tribes that receive funds through the federal CCDF to prepare and submit a plan detailing how these funds will be allocated and expended. The California Department of Education has been designated in state law to be the lead agency that is responsible for administering the CCDF in California and, therefore, is required to submit the CCDF State Plan.

Brookings: Obama uses bad data to push 'preschool for all'
Breitbart
The Brookings Institution found that President Barack Obama is using bad data to justify spending an extra $120 billion on "Preschool for All." Research by the left-leaning think tank discovered that advocates of the policy, which would extend a new entitlement for all low- and moderate-income four-year-olds over the next decade, had inappropriately included 3-year-olds' attendance to artificially reduce the percentage of children that are attending preschool before kindergarten.

As preschool programs expand, teacher pay under scrutiny
Education Week
Early education workers have been paid low wages for years, but as public programs grow, the issue is increasingly on reporters' radar. A Sept. 23 story on the hyper-local news site DNAinfo, introduced us to a preschool teacher who said she'd be living in a shelter if she wasn't able to live with her mother. "If fast food workers deserve $15 per hour, then surely those teaching our most vulnerable children every day deserve significantly more," David Nocenti, executive director of Union Settlement, which runs seven early-childhood centers in New York City's East Harlem neighborhood, told DNAinfo.

Preschool kids can be discriminating learners
PsychCentral
Kids learn about the world from those around them. New research finds that although kids are susceptible to information provided to them, they are also not as gullible as one may imagine. Researchers found this was especially true for those who have a good understanding of what's going on inside someone else's head. In a new study, researchers from Concordia University and the University of Ottawa discovered that even young children can be selective in whom they prefer to learn from. A paper discussing their findings has been recently published in the British Journal of Developmental Psychology.

Sharing picture books with kids can make them smarter and more attentive
The Conversation
Illiteracy is a global concern. Research suggests that 175 million young people, largely from poor countries and regions, lack basic literacy skills. This has wide-ranging negative effects, both for individuals and society at large. Illiteracy has been shown to contribute to poor health. A World Literacy Foundation study estimated that illiteracy costs the global economy more than $1 trillion a year through lost job opportunities. But our research suggests that there is one simple way to equip your children for a life of literacy from their infancy: share picture books with them.

First aid kits for child care providers
Earlychildhood News
Minor accidents and unintentional childhood injuries are not unusual in the child care setting. Even with careful supervision, children frequently sustain scrapes, bruises, cuts, bites and falls in the normal course of their day. Less frequently, medical emergencies such as seizures, asthma attacks and allergic reactions may require immediate intervention and treatment. Providing a safe environment and responding to accidents and injuries in a timely and professional manner are essential caregiver responsibilities.

'Delayed remembering': Kids can remember tomorrow what they forgot today
Medical News Today
For adults, memories tend to fade with time. But a new study has shown that there are circumstances under which the opposite is true for small children: they can remember a piece of information better days later than they can on the day they first learned it. While playing a video game that asked them to remember associations between objects, 4- and 5-year-olds who re-played the game after a two-day delay scored more than 20 percent higher than kids who re-played it later the same day. "An implication is that kids can be smarter than we necessarily thought they could be," said Kevin Darby, a doctoral student in psychology at The Ohio State University and co-author of the study.

Part II: Functions and capacities of P-3 governance
Preschool Matters ... Today
Governance change has been a catalyst for broader system development in the states that have chosen to focus on this subsystem (Dichter, 2015; Gomez, 2014), though much more empirical work needs to occur in order to understand how governance affects state system development and, subsequently, services to children and families. More than a simple reorganization of the deck chairs within state government, revamped approaches to P-3 governance have led to states experiencing different outcomes for P-3 system development. Indeed, in her study of governance and RTTT-ELC States, Dichter notes that state leaders who have invested in integrated approaches to P-3 governance believe that it "improves services for children through greater focus, consistency, and inclusion of all developmental domains" (2015, p.2).

Kids pick apples as favorite fruit
U.S. News & World Report
Apples are delicious, kids agree. A new study in Pediatrics looked at fruit consumption in more than 3,000 U.S. kids ages 2 to 19 and found apples were the favorite by far. When asked how they consumed fruit, most kids (53 percent) preferred the whole — and healthiest — form, while others liked 100-percent juice drinks, according to researchers at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Citrus juices, bananas, melons, berries, citrus fruit, fruit salads, grapes, peaches and nectarines followed apples as top picks for kids. Choices varied by age and race but not by gender, the study found.
