The first five years are the most critical time in a child’s development. What happens in the first five years affects the rest of a child’s life. 4Cs is making San Mateo County a better place by helping parents find child care and community resources that meets the unique needs of their families. In partnership with early educators, and providing them with tools and resources, 4Cs is helping to improve the way our community supports the success of young children.

We have an established network of community partners, volunteers and supporters who cheer us along the way. We invite you to join with us in ensuring that all children in San Mateo County receive quality care and early learning.
