PRE-K SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM

PreK.jpg
From subsidizing school supplies to our ongoing Pre-K Scholarship Program, we are dedicated to helping our local children and the school that fosters them.
 
Now that the the fabric of our education system is being completely re-woven due to COVID-19, our local school can use a little extra help with acquiring supplies needed for children to continue their schooling from home.
 
We recently provided such support by fulfilling the teachers’ first round of wish-lists for their students.

PRE-K SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM

HOW TO HELP A 3-YEAR OLD FINISH HIGH SCHOOL
It’s simply a fact that 3- and 4-year old children who attend school PRIOR to starting Kindergarten are more likely to complete high school.
  • They’re more likely to have high reading scores in the 5th grade.
  • They’re more likely NOT to be held back to repeat a school year.
  • They’re more likely to complete college!
 
And these statistics are even more compelling in dual-language households.
 
But, unlike the rest of the public school system, Pre-K is not free. In fact, it’s rather expensive – up to $620/month for a 5-day schedule with after-school care.

So that’s why Waves of Compassion Foundation offers Pre-K Scholarships to students attending the Bodega Bay Elementary School program.
How does it work? Many of our local families qualify for support from a California fund administered by the State. But there are a few families who make just a bit over the maximum allowed monthly income. Those are the families we’re helping, by providing matching funds.
 
If you know of a family with a 3- or 4-year old child, encourage them to enroll in a Pre-K program!
