Enhance Early Learning

First 5 San Joaquin invested in programs that help children succeed in school.

Early childhood programs pay dividends for life. We see savings as early as kindergarten, [with] reduced burdens on the schools. We see savings in the teenage years. We see a direct link to higher adult productivity and self-sufficiency."

James Heckman, Nobel Laureate in Economics

In 2019-2020, 643 children ages 3 to 5 participated in a free quality preschool program.
