About the San Francisco Office of Early Care and Education (OECE)

High quality early education prepares children for kindergarten–and all future learning.

In 2013, late San Francisco Mayor Lee, established OECE coordinate various funding streams for San Francisco’s early learning system, which includes a combination of local, state and federal funds. OECE was created to streamline public funds in order to increase access to early care and education for families with young children, under the age of five.

OECE oversees several community initiatives supporting children and families through an array of programmatic activities in early learning sites, which includes family supports, child social, emotional, development and health services. These systems of supports are coordinated with other public entities, S.F. Unified School District (SFUSD), Department of Public Health (DPH), Department of Children, Youth and their Families (DCYF), and First 5 San Francisco (First 5) and aligned to our City’s, Our Children Our Families (OCOF) Outcomes Framework.  


Interdepartmental Collaboration


In 2018, Mayor Breed requested for OECE to align with First 5 San Francisco in order to improve our city’s early childhood system. These two city departments will align, jointly fund, and potentially create one single entity to oversee San Francisco’s early childhood system.  To explore the creation of a combined organizational structure and entity, both departments are developing a joint strategic plan with the goal of improving our systems of early care, focused on improving children’s outcomes and employing a racial equity lens. The strategic planning process will engage stakeholders through a community research action planning process with a parent-led program design as we emphasize relevancy of supports and services to San Francisco’s youngest residents. Each department is working closely to define roles, functions and inter-departmental collaboration towards integrating early childhood initiatives that improve children’s school readiness.



Racial Equity Statement


Equity means every child receives what she or he needs to develop to her or his full academic and social potential.


Across our public sector, a fundamental element of social impact remains missing: race equity. OECE and First 5 SF use a racial equity lens to address persistent and profoundly disturbing differences in academic outcomes for children by race/ethnicity. These disturbing differences begin before children enter kindergarten. This is not to deny that many children under these circumstances succeed to high levels, or that many highly trained, dedicated and effective teachers and other educational staff are doing excellent work every day. However, the truth remains that children of color experience potent current and accumulated disadvantages. It is not surprising that differences in educational opportunities mirror the differences in academic achievement by race/ethnicity at every level – in access to high quality preschool, credit accumulation and rates of high school graduation, college admissions, retention and graduation, etc. To this end, the goal of erasing disparities in outcomes for our youngest children of color is the nexus of the joint work ahead for First 5 SF and OECE.

OECE and First 5 SF condemns all forms of racism, sexism, homophobia, ableism, and other forms of discrimination; and affirms that all people – which explicitly includes Black, Indigenous, and People of Color – have a right to be in our City and have a right to safe and affordable housing, neighborhoods free from pollution and violence, opportunities for educational advancement and wealth creation, healthy access to essential services such as parks, transportation, health care, and early education.

OECE and First 5 SF commit to advancing racial equity internally including in our recruitment and hiring processes. We are specifically seeking candidates with diverse perspectives, knowledge, experience, and skills aligned to racial equity and justice. We are committed to anti-racism and advancing racial equity in our work on behalf of children and families. We aim to embrace these values in the recruitment and hiring process, seeking candidates with diverse perspectives, knowledge, experience, and skills aligned to racial equity and justice. We value those with lived experiences performing work relevant to the position description.
