Most of the documents on Newsom’s budget plans, leaked to news outlets over the past week, lack details on what the programs would cost. But a plan to expand education programs, including full-day kindergarten and infant or toddler childcare, was pegged at $1.8 billion. Much of that money, according to a document obtained last week by The Times, would be a one-time expense. Newsom would expand classroom facilities and training programs for childcare workers — the kind of spending that would lay the groundwork for enhanced programs. Actual growth in the programs would have to wait until the future.
