Inclusive Child Care Action Team (ICCAT)
Building inclusive, high quality child care opportunities for all children and their families in Santa Barbara County.
It is the vision of the Inclusive Child Care Action Team that early care and education providers, parents and special service providers work together with a passionate commitment to support full inclusion of children of all abilities in our community.
We envision a system that meets the inclusive early care and education needs of children, their families, and providers by promoting technical assistance, training, resources, public awareness, and support to families for accessing high quality early care and education.
Membership on the Inclusive Child Care Action Team is open to any individual interested in increasing the quality and quantity of inclusive child care in Santa Barbara County. Interested individuals should contact the Child Care Planning Council for meeting information.
