Healthy Peninsula envisions a community where all families with young children have the support and opportunities that they need to prepare children entering kindergarten to be socially, emotionally, and physically ready to learn.

Data support the theory that when children have high-quality pre-kindergarten educational and social experiences, they are more likely to leave school ready for post-secondary learning opportunities.
