Families with 4 year olds have many early learning options that include: TK, private preschool, care through family childcare homes, and low-cost/free subsidized programs (if eligible) such as Head Start, California State Preschool Program, Alternative Payment Program, and other subsidized programs.

The Steps to Success Campaign, with the support of the Morgan Family Foundation, seeks to raise public awareness about the positive impacts of enrollment and consistent attendance in early care and education programs during a child’s first 5 years.
