Beyond the financial savings for families, PEEPS has a more important mission: molding the next generation of learners by giving them a solid educational base.
As of March 31, 2022, 685 children from financially eligible families were receiving assistance from PEEPS to send their children to high-quality preschools in Pima County. That’s an estimated combined savings of $548,000 a month that doesn’t have to come out of the pockets of local families.
Funding for Year 1 of PEEPS, which recently concluded, was provided by Pima County’s share of Federal American Rescue Plan Act funding.
