Dr. Michael Olenick Comments on ECE State Affairs
Dr. Michael Olenick Comments on ECE State Affairs

Recently our President and CEO, Dr. Michael Olenick, made the following comment on KQED in regards to a new state Assembly blue-ribbon commission, which released a report last month signifying major enhancements to the state’s early childhood education (ECE) system.

“[The report brings a] holistic approach to all of the issues in the early childhood education space,” Olenick said. Not only did we look at what needed to be addressed, we described how it should be addressed and put out a time frame.”

The Assembly blue-ribbon commission’s report, which Dr. Olenick participated in, calls for streamlining the eligibility system so that low-income families can qualify for quality child care and keep it, even if they receive an increase in pay. It recommends that low-income families pay no more than 7% of their income for child care.

CCRC is committed to advocating for the needs of our community. Dr. Olenick has previously expressed his outlook on the new proposed budget from Govenor Newsom, and we look forward to working with him and current legislators to further highlight the needs of working parents, their children, and all child care providers.
