About Pre-K 4 SA

We Are Early Childhood Education Advocates

Pre-K 4 SA was established to change the trajectory of education in San Antonio. Through high quality early childhood education, Pre-K 4 SA will create a world-class workforce in one generation. Yes, if nurtured correctly, early childhood education is the key to creating culturally concerned and productive citizens.

We Have a Wide Reach

Pre-K 4 SA educates 2,000 students every year through its four education centers and provides critical family education, empowerment and support. Its Professional Learning Program hosts resourceful workshops, seminars, training and certification opportunities for ECE professionals. And its Competitive Grants Program aids the success of other pre-K 3 centers throughout San Antonio.

We Are Raising the Bar

Not only are we garnering impressive testing measurements, Pre-K 4 SA has been featured in over 30 local, regional, national and international outlets, including Politico, CNN, The New York Times and Huffington Post. In fact, other cities visit our campuses as a model for what they can implement in their own communities. Each year, Pre-K 4 SA provides over 10,000 hours of free, best-in-class professional learning to more than 2,000 early childhood educators throughout San Antonio and through our Grants Program, we award $4.2 million to other area Pre-K through 3rd grade programs to aid in their success. By 2021 Pre-K 4 SA’s Grants program will have awarded over $21 million since the inception of the program. Through these efforts we will have an impact on over 200,000 students throughout San Antonio by the year 2020.
