Students from Wu Yee’s Golden Gate Preschool at 177 Golden Gate Avenue in the Tenderloin took a walk down to San Francisco’s City Hall to join students, teachers, parents and community members who wanted to say “Yes” to retaining, restoring, and raising investments in child care.

Students from Wu Yee’s Lok Yuen Preschool, Generations Preschool and Little Sprouts Infant Center  walked “around the block” in Chinatown, and students at Wu Yee's New Generation Preschool participated in Visitacion Valley.
