The Big Lift invests in high-quality preschools through coordinated classroom support, including the professional development of teachers, on-site technical assistance, and coaching—all measured by rigorous quality standards aligned with the California Quality Rating and Improvement System (QRIS). Our goal is to provide two years of high-quality preschool for San Mateo County children.
If we are serious about closing equity gaps, then we must prioritize access to high quality early learning for every child.
