Return on investment preschool
Return on Investment (preschool)

  • A recent study calculated that California would gain at least $2.00 (and possibly more than $4.00) for every $1.00 invested in preschool

  • A 2007 study determined that a targeted preschoolprogram in California would begin to pay for itself within six years

  • Preschoolwould net substantial benefits by saving government spending on K-12 education, child welfare, and the criminal justice system, and by increasing tax revenues

Return on investment home visitation
Return on Investment (home visitation)

  • Studies show that children that have been abused and neglected have higher rates of juvenile delinquency, teen pregnancy, school failure, alcohol use and psychiatric illness

  • The Parents as Teachers curriculum is used in First 5 funded home visitation services with a per child funding investment of $4,300. It is estimated that if each of the $4 million children born annually in the U.S. participated in a PAT program, more than $17 billion in benefits could be realized

Return on investment health systems
Return on Investment (health systems)

  • First 5 serves as one of the few funding sources for uninsured children who don’t qualify for federal and state health insurance programs

  • A recent nine county study found that Healthy Kids decreases the chance of hospitalization for preventable diseases and manageable conditions by increasing access to primary care

  • The reduction in hospitalizations saves the State of California and federal government up to $7.3 million annually in hospital costs
