Thrive by 5

Need help paying for preschool or denied state tuition assistance? We are here to help. Due to the rising cost of living in Hawai'i, many hard working families earn too much to quality for state assistance, yet struggle to cover the cost of preschool. To help make quality early education affordable for more families, WCC started the Thrive by 5 Affordable Preschool Initiative, reducing tuition to by about 50% for ALICE (Asset Limited Income Constrained, Employed) qualifying families.
