Provider Supports

The Provider Supports Subcommittee of the Early Learning Advisory Council (ELAC) was created in January 2020. The group is made up of members from the previous Licensed Center Advisory Subcommittee (LCAS) and Early Achievers Review Subcommittee (EARS).

The purpose of the group is to discuss and advise on all services around child care licensing; including but not limited to, licensing policy, WAC changes, rules publishing calendar, agency request legislation, administrative concerns, subsidy rules/rates, whole family health, etc.

Members are representatives of Washington's regional, racial, and cultural diversity and have made a commitment to racial equity and considers cultural and linguistic responsiveness as key aspects of their work.  Members serve two-year terms that end June 30th of the second year. The group plans to continue to grow by including other members from existing DCYF groups that encompass those who provide licensed child care services to children.
