National Child Abuse Prevention Month/el Mes Nacional de Prevención del Abuso Infantil
What is the Week of the Young Child?
The Week of the Young Child (April 10 16) is an annual celebration sponsored by
the National Association for the Education of
Young Children (NAEYC), the world’s largest early
childhood education association, with nearly 90,000
members and a network of over 300 local, state, and regional
The purpose of the Week of the Young Child is to focus public attention
on the needs of young children and their families and to recognize the
early childhood programs and services that meet those needs.
NAEYC first established the Week of the Young Child in 1971, recognizing that
the early childhood years (birth through age 8) lay the foundation for children’s
success in school and later life. The Week of the Young Child is a time to plan how
we--as citizens of a community, of a state, and of a nation--will better meet the
needs of all young children and their families.
Budget Cuts: How they will impact
children and parents and child care &
support programs.
March 4, 2011 / A March 17, 2011 update on some
of the voting outcomes follows this letter by Donita
Child care took a devastating blow from a $500 million
cut as the Joint Legislative Budget Conference Committee
finalized their cuts to move the budget on to the Senate
and Assembly floors. The cuts are as follows:
• Stage 3 Child Care: Restores CalWORKs Stage 3
without any policy changes enacted during the
current year (April - June 2011)
• Across-the-Board Program Cuts: Reduces funding
to all subsidy programs, including pre-school, by
15 percent. Cuts $267 million in Prop. 98 funding.
• 11 & 12 year-old Eligibility: Eliminate Eligibility
for 11- 12 year-olds who use child care during
traditional hours. This protects care during nontraditional hours and exempts children with
disabilities, those at risk of abuse or homeless.
Cuts $38.5 million in Prop. 98 funding.
• State Median Income: Reduce Family State Median
Income (SMI) to 70 percent from the current level
of 75 percent. Cuts $30 million in Prop. 98 funding.
Centralized Eligibility List: Eliminate the Centralized
Eligibility List and transfer funds to direct child
care services. No cuts to funding.
License-exempt Provider Reimbursement: Reduce
License-exempt providers rates from 80 percent
of the licensed rate to 60 percent. Cuts $44.1
million in Prop. 98 funding.
Standard Reimbursement Rate: Reduce the
Standard Reimbursement Rate (SRR) by up to 10
percent. Cuts $109 million in Prop. 98 funding.
Family Fees: Approves a 10 percent across the
board increase to the family fee schedule. (unclear
how this would be implemented) No funding cut
amount noted
Quality Child Care Funding: Reduce quality child
care funding by $16 million in federal funds lost
from the one-time ARRA funding. Details of the
specific cuts to the Quality funding will be available
soon. (note: as of printing, these cuts include the
elimination of the License-Exempt Project, CCIP
cut 15%, Trustline, Consumer education, Health &
safety Grants cut 9%)
Additionally, the “refundable” portion of the
Child and Dependent Care Expense Credit was
eliminated. The core tax credit program is retained.
Proposition 10 Funds shifted to Medi-Cal: $1 billion of
State and County Proposition 10 funds will be re-directed
to the State General Fund to cover Medi-Cal coverage for
0 - 5 year-olds in the State. $950 million will come from
local Commissions reserves and $50 million will come from
State Commission reserves. It is our understanding that
there is an interpretation that this type of move WILL NOT
require an initiative.
It is hard to even imagine the impact of these reductions
across California and to the children and families that we
serve every day. Advocates will regroup tomorrow and
determine what options are available to us to counter
any of these reductions, but I fear there are few if any
The budget will now be up for a vote on both the Senate
and Assembly floors and it is important that you contact
your Legislators and let them know the devastating impact
of these reductions in your communities. While the voters
passed an initiative to allow the approval of a State budget
by a majority vote, it is still necessary to obtain a 2/3 vote
for an tax continuations or expansion, so this budget will
require a 2/3 vote to pass which means that all Democratic
Legislators plus two Republican Legislators in each house
will need to vote to support the budget bills.
After approved by both the Senate and Assembly, it goes
to the Governor for his signature and at that point he can
“blue pencil” additional funding if he so chooses, however,
he cannot add anything to the budget.

Expenditure Reduction Budget Trailer Bills Pass
Updates from March 16 and 17, 2011, information from
Tim Fitzharris, Legislative Analyst, CDPI
On March 16th, both houses took up Budget trailer bills
and passed many of them, including the ones affecting
CalWORKs, mental health, and First 5 funding. On March
17th, the Budget itself was called up. The votes needed
weren’t there for the revenues. Relative to the approved
trailer bills, is a one-time funding sweep of $50 million
from the State First 5 Commission and $950 million from
county First 5 Commissions; for CalWORKs, reduced
benefits and eligibility. The Education trailer bill was
passed by both houses .
How do these cuts effect Child Development
programs and families receiving services?
What about the 15% cut in funds and its across-theboard implementation ?
The Trailer Bills states:
“The amounts appropriated (for) Preschool Education,
General Child Care, Migrant Day Care, Alternative
Payment Program, CalWORKs Stage 3, and Allowance
for Handicapped, reflect a reduction of 15 percent, to
be effective July 1, 2011, to all contracts. The State
Department of Education may consider the contractor’s
performance or whether the contractor serves children in
underserved areas as defined in subdivision (ag) of Section
8208 of the Education Code when determining contract
reductions, provided that the aggregate reduction to
each program specified above is 15 percent.”
What about Family Fee increases?
The Trailer Bill states:
Family Fees. “Notwithstanding any other provision of
law, the family fee schedule that was in effect for the
2007-08, 2008-09, 2009-10, and 2010-11 fiscal years
shall be adjusted to reflect the income eligibility limits
specified in subdivision (a) for the 2011-12 fiscal year,
and shall retain a flat fee per family. The revised fee
schedule shall begin at income levels at which families
currently begin paying fees, and shall reflect an
increase of 10 percent as compared to existing fees.
The revised family fees shall not exceed 10 percent
of the family’s monthly income. The Department of
Education shall first submit the adjusted fee schedule to
the Department of Finance for approval in order to be
implemented by July 1, 2011.”
How will families be "dis-enrolled from subsidized
programs ??
The Trailer Bill states:
“Notwithstanding any other provision of law, families
shall be disenrolled from subsidized child care services
consistent with the priorities for services specified in
subdivision (b) of Section 8263 of the Education Code.
Families shall be disenrolled in the following order: (a)
families whose income exceeds 70 percent of the state
median income (SMI) adjusted for family size, except for
families whose children are receiving child protective
services or are at risk of being neglected or abused, (b)
families with the highest income below 70 percent of the
SMI adjusted for family size, (c) of families with the same
income level, those that have been receiving child care
services for the longest period of time, (d) of families
with the same income level, those that have a child with
exceptional needs, and (e) families with children who
are receiving child protective services or are at risk of
being neglected or abused, regardless of family income.”
How has the Standand reimbursement rate been
Here is what the Trailer Bill states:
“Effective July 1, 2011, the maximum standard
reimbursement rate shall not exceed $30.94 per day for
general child care programs and $19.10 per day for state
preschool programs. Furthermore, the migrant child care
and Cal-SAFE child care programs shall adhere to the
maximum standard reimbursement rates as prescribed
for the general child care programs. All other rates and
adjustment factors shall conform.”

• Through
we can now protect infants
and children from 14 vaccinepreventable diseases before
age two.
• In the 1950s, nearly every child developed measles,
and unfortunately, some even
died from this serious disease.
Today, few physicians just out
of medical school will ever
see a case of measles during
their careers.
• In March 2005, CDC announced that rubella is no
longer a major health threat
to expectant mothers and
their unborn children, thanks
to a safe and effective vaccine, high vaccine coverage.
• In September 2010, CDC
announced that childhood immunization rates for vaccines
routinely recommended for
children remain at or near record highs.
Yet without diligent efforts
to maintain immunization
programs in the United States
and to strengthen them
worldwide, vaccine-preventable diseases will remain a
threat to children. As illustrations, it’s only necessary
to consider the 2010 California outbreak of whooping cough where over 8,000
cases were reported in the
state and where there were
10 infant deaths, or measles,
which takes the lives of more
than 100,000 children globally each year.

our referral policy
River to coast children’s services’ referral policy is based on
respecting parental choice. Responsibility for selecting child
care rests with each parent. RCCS assists parents in finding the
widest range of available child care and offers information to
help families evaluate available child care options. A RIVER TO
COAST CHILDREN’S SERVICES referral is not a recommendation
or a guarantee of quality care. Parents should carefully
interview and check references of potential child care
providers before leaving a child in their care.
La poliza de referencias de RIVER TO COAST CHILDREN’S SERVICES
respeta la preferencia de los padres. La responsabilidad de
escoger el cuidado de niños es de los padres. Asistimos a los
padres a encontrar la variedad más amplia de cuidado de niños
que se ofrece y ofrecemos información para evaluar el cuidado
de niños. Una recomendación de RCCS no significa una garantía
de calidad. Les pedimos a los padres que hagan una entrevista
cuidadosa y que examinen las recomendaciones antes de que
dejen un niño al cuidado de otra persona.
