ATTENDING PRE-SCHOOL helps children do better in Kindergarten. Parents ‐ you can contact your local elementary school to find out about State-funded pre-schools and other programs for young children that often are available at low to no cost. More information is available at the California Child Care Resource and Referral Network (http://www.rrnetwork.org/.)
EARLY CHILDHOOD (birth to age 5) is an extremely important time in your child's development. This is such an important time that California has established Commissions on Children and Families (http://www.ccfc.ca.gov/) in every county. Parents ‐ you can contact your County government office to find out about the Commission in your area and any health and education programs that it is supporting. Or, check out the county commission Web site at: http://www.ccfc.ca.gov/county/county_default.html.
