Notes:
Generally based on appropriation and annual average rate per child. Slot numbers reflect DSS estimates for CalWORKs Stage 1; DOF estimates for CalWORKs Stage 2 and 3, General Child Care, Migrant Child Care, and Care for Children with Severe Disabilities; and LAO estimates for all other programs. Table reflects actuals for all stages of CalWORKs child care in 2017-18 and updated DSS estimates for Stage 1 in 2018-19. Stage 2 does not include certain community college child care slots (1,300 to 1,800 slots annually). State Preschool wraparound slots for non-LEAs (funded by General Child Care) are shown in State Preschool—full day. For Transitional Kindergarten, reflects preliminary estimates, as enrollment data not yet publicly available for 2018-19 and 2019-20. Table does not include slots funded through emergency bridge program for foster children.
DSS = Department of Social Services. DOF = Department of Finance. LEAs = local education agencies.
