Striving For Excellence is Marin Child Care Council's annual conference for early childhood educators and professionals in Marin and surrounding counties. The conference enables people who are working with children, directly or indirectly, to obtain training in a professional and relaxed environment.  All are welcome -- licensed family childcare providers, childcare center staff, administrators, informal (non-licensed) caregivers and other interested community members. The participants engage in stimulating learning opportunities and gained knowledge that directly enhances the quality of care provided in their programs.


Educating and involving local communities and leaders, to understand child care issues and to plan effectively to address child care needs that are supportive of all families, is a vital role we play in this community. We are proud to work in partnership with a number of local and statewide organizations and groups on behalf of families and children.
