South City Needs Measure DD
No child in South City should be left out—or left behind.
South San Francisco’s high-quality public preschool program has a four-year waitlist of more than 700 children.
Working families who don’t win a spot in this affordable program have no choice but to find a private provider—oftentimes in a different city—and pay on average $20,000/year in tuition per child.
And children whose families can’t afford that expense often don’t attend preschool at all, and miss out on crucial preparation for kindergarten.
Every child deserves a good start in life, regardless of their family’s ability to pay.
Our grassroots campaign will fund Preschool for All South San Francisco. When South City residents vote Yes on Measure DD!, we will
Preschool for All is funded by a modest tax on the largest commercial office parcels in town. Big corporations ought to pay their fair share to make South San Francisco a great place to work and a great place to live.
