Plazas is making early childhood education more affordable for local families here in Oakland. The cost of preschool is now more than a year’s college tuition, and over 3,000 Oakland families are currently waitlisted for state subsidies.
Children who receive high-quality early childhood education often have better emotional, social, and academic outcomes for many years beyond their early childhood.
Over the past year, we’ve been able to raise enought money for 3 scholarships to help low-income families provide bilingual preschool education for their children. We aim to double our fundraising goal in 2019 and increase opportunities for young children to learn and develop.
We invite you to support Plazas by making a donation or by joining our running team at the Oakland Running Festival.
