Every child deserves an equal start
We offer our services to children ages 3 to 5 residing in San Mateo County, California. During the course of the program, their progress is documented. Support is provided for both our volunteer teachers and family-teacher throughout the great learning journey the child will embark on. Please join us in supporting these children in this critical phase of their development.
A sample pairing between a volunteer-teacher, parent-teacher and child
M. is the youngest of three children. He is a smart, funny, energetic boy. He loves playing with dinosaurs and superheroes. When he grows up he wants to be a cook, like his father, or a doctor.
Before her last child was born, Mrs. G worked as a commercial cleaner. After he was born, she stayed home to take care of her children. Mr. G works as a cook and works for two different restaurants throughout the week. Mr. and Mrs. G want their son to have a good education and be ready for school.
Ms. E works as a customer support agent and has two children of her own. She loves young children and wanted to help a child be ready for school. “It has been so fun! M is waiting for me each week at the door and wants to know what we are going to play with today. I see a huge difference since we started. He is more confident and has turned into a chatter box talking about what is happening in his life.”
