Price Philanthropies supports working families by improving access to quality early education and childcare. We focus on this area because every dollar spent on quality childcare programs for disadvantaged children ages 0-5 delivers a 7-11% per year return on investment through better outcomes in education, health, social behaviors, and employment. Unfortunately, there are not enough licensed childcare slots in San Diego County, a shortage that has been exacerbated by a 16% decrease in family childcare homes since 2008.
