Support Your Future Workforce: Sponsor a Pre-K Academy Student Today!
For just $200 you can sponsor a child in your community to begin their education with the skills necessary to succeed academically. Your $200 contribution is matched dollar-for-dollar by First 5 Solano to send at-risk children with no prior preschool experience to a Pre-K academy in summer 2014.

“One of the most powerful indicators of a student being at risk for school failure in their later years is their lack of readiness for kindergarten. For years the Pre-K academies have successfully helped prepare students that have little or no preschool experience. There is no question in my mind that this relatively small investment at this early age absolutely can change the course of a child’s life”.  - Jay Speck Solano County Superintendent of Schools and First 5 Solano Commission Chair.

Help Me Grow Solano
"One Call. That's All". Help Me Grow Solano is a collaborative partnership of all First 5 Solano funded programs and other community partners serving children and families from birth through age 5 in Solano County.  Help Me Grow Solano provides a central point of access for services, healthcare provider outreach, community outreach, data collection, and outcomes.

Help Me Grow does not provide direct services, but their goal is to assist families in getting connected to the services that they need.
