Our Board

Educare California at Silicon Valley proudly collaborates with public and private partners to operate our innovative early learning school. Our work and accomplishments are richer because of the dedication, leadership, engagement, and diversity of perspectives of our board of directors and staff. Our board is comprised of thought-leaders in the fields of education, early education, philanthropy, and supportive services. We are grateful for the expertise, passion, and advocacy our board members bring to close the opportunity gap by making high-quality early learning accessible for all children.
