San Antonio city officials have identified a lack of child-care resources in the city’s south side where about 11,000 children currently reside. In an effort to combat this, Imagination Child Development Center, a new daycare center located in the South Side, opened last month. The Imagination Child Development Center is a member of the San Antonio Shared Services Alliance, powered by Pre-k 4 SA. This child care center means a better quality of life for local working parents who are thankful to have childcare just minutes away from where they live.
In November 2020, 73% of San Antonio voters approved an eight-year renewal of a 2012 referendum to increase the local sales tax by one-eighth of a cent to fund Pre-K 4 SA, a voluntary, full-day pre-k program for four-year-old children from low and middle-income families.
