My friends Tracy, Jaime, Susanne and I are running the Oakland marathon team relay with Plazas to increase access to early childhood education for local low-income families.
Children who receive high-quality early childhood education have better long term social, emotional and academic outcomes. We know first hand from our kids' experiences (we have nine between the four of us!) how enriching preschool is. We also know how expensive it is and believe that improving access not only benefits children and their families, but our community as a whole.
Your donation will directly support scholarships for families seeking high-quality, Spanish-immersion or bilingual preschool programs in East Oakland.
Plazas Community Bilingual Education is a nonprofit based in Oakland, CA that I helped found with other parents and community members in 2017. For more information, please see our website www.plazasbilingual.org
