Request for Qualifications

March 30, 2020:
First 8 Memphis, LLC is soliciting proposals from interested and qualified operators to serve four year old children at risk of not achieving K-readiness and their families in the First 8 Memphis pre-K program in which the partners will coordinate and provide early childhood education services in order to develop school readiness skills (pre-academic and social skills).

Applying for a First 8 Memphis pre-K classroom(s) will improve the likelihood that students in Shelby County will reach these goals and move our community closer to achieving universal needs-based pre-K. The long-term goal we are striving to achieve is improved economic and social mobility for the families and children of Shelby County.

This Request for Qualifications (“RFQ”) serves to provide local education agencies with the opportunity to apply for one or more First 8 Memphis pre-K classrooms. First 8 Memphis invites interested and qualified operators to prepare and submit responses in accordance with instructions provided herein. The successful respondent(s) will be invited to enter into a contractual agreement for the Goods and/or Services outlined in this RFQ.
