In March 2004, San Francisco voters passed Proposition H, a Charter Amendment, declaring, “It shall be the policy of the City and County of San Francisco to provide all four-year-old children who are City residents the opportunity to attend preschool…” This initiative provides access to high quality part-day preschool for all San Francisco’s four-year-olds, regardless of household income. In 2010, Pacific Primary was selected to be part of the Preschool For All program.
To be eligible for Preschool For All, children must simply be 4 years old and residents of San Francisco. Once enrolled, Preschool for All families receive a monthly tuiton discount of approximately $450. In addition to the tuition discount, Pacific Primary receives improvement funds based on the number of enrolled children that enhance the school’s programs.
