Major expansion makes Preschool available to more San Francisco families


“An investment in Universal Pre-K is an investment in San Francisco families and an investment in a more affordable San Francisco,” said San Francisco Mayor Edwin M. Lee, in a statement released today. Mayor Lee announced a major expansion in the San Francisco Preschool for All (PFA) program for all four-year-olds in the city.

Not only will this expansion enhance early education options for San Francisco’s children and increase Kindergarten readiness, but it will also help meet the needs of more working families.

Wu Yee is excited to join Children’s Council in helping San Francisco families find the Preschool For All program that’s right for them.
