Welcome to SF SEED


Removing Barriers & Minimizing Challenges.


SF SEED (San Francisco Supporting Early Educator Degrees) is a fiscal incentive program for early child educators as they advance toward an associate’s or bachelor’s degree in early childhood education, as well as professional development within their current place of employment. SF SEED stipends are geared towards individuals who work at least 15 hours in a licensed child care center-based or family child care program and attend a two-year or four-year institution of higher learning.


SF SEED is partnered with the Early Care & Workforce Registry where the SF SEED stipend application is based online at www.caregistry.org.
