SACRAMENTO — Assemblymember Cecilia Aguiar-Curry, D-Winters, introduced Assembly Bill 324, the “Childcare Professional Development Act.” This bill will provide expanded childcare workforce development grants to new providers, so that our state has the capacity to administer a higher level of care to an increased number of children.

“For the third year in a row, I will fight for high-quality, affordable childcare in California,” said Aguiar-Curry. “My bill, AB 324, will ensure that our kids and families can access early education programs by empowering new providers to enter the system and encouraging existing teachers to continue learning. We now know that the job of education starts on day one. Training and retaining qualified, committed professionals is critical to our children’s future.”
