Be a part of our family and make a positive change to a child's future.
Welcome to Family Connections
Family Connections is a tuition-free parent participation program for low-income families, educating over 400 individuals each year at three sites in San Mateo County. Parents participate in preschool classes with their children, from newborn to five-years-old, in a unique program that provides education for not only their children but also themselves. Family Connections’ parents stay involved in their children’s education and as a result, their children are more prepared for Kindergarten and beyond.
Funding for our new Nurturing Families program has been generously furnished by First Five of San Mateo.

"Family Connections motivates us as a family to continue our education as parents as well as individuals. I try to follow our teachers as role models. They are great teachers and they inspire me to keep going because I know that is so important for the well being of our children and their own development. Thank you for supporting this program!"
