Samuel's mom calls him Sammy. They live in Westwood, Ohio, and his mom will send Sammy to high-quality preschool thanks to Cincinnati Preschool Promise.
Sammy's mom, Marquira, said that it can be hard to maintain keeping up with paying for Sammy's educational needs and paying bills, and trying to pay everything on time. The director of Sammy's current program referred Marquira to Preschool Promise. "She called me and said I was best fit for this program. I did my research by going to United Way, and reading about how it was a great program - not just for Samuel and me, but for a lot of parents out there that want to send their children to preschool," said Marquira. "Preschool Promise will.....help my kid succeed to go forward in life."
