The Parent Council is comprised of parents who volunteer to support the mission of Early Childhood Care & Education Services and serve as a resource and advisor to the Director and teaching staff. We meet monthly to plan fundraisers, parent education meetings, and social events for the Centers. We plan and fund enrichment activities for the classrooms, and we provide petty cash for each classroom to use for essential resources.

For more information please contact our parent council at sa-parentcouncil@ucsb.edu
