Participation in high-quality preschool leads to better academic and life outcomes for children. Preschool increases children’s social skills as well as lays the foundation for future school success. These benefits last well into adulthood.

The First 5 Ventura County Commission funds free preschool spaces. The preschools are operated by partners throughout the county. Please see below for a list of F5VC funded preschools and be sure to contact each program directly for enrollment information.

The scholarships are administered by Child Development Resources (CDR). Providers may include licensed, center-based programs and licensed family/child care locations, as long as they are participating in Ventura County’s QRIS program, VC Rising Stars.
