Kindergarten Enrollment

Starting school is exciting for children and for parents. It is also natural to feel overwhelmed, sad, or even scared or worried. Being prepared can help: 


·       Talk about what to expect.

·       Point out the school when you drive or walk around your neighborhood.

·       Read books about starting school. 

·       Visit the school when offer tours.

·       Attend a Meet the Teacher event.

·       Offer children opportunities to be independent and praise their efforts.


It is also important to start the enrollment process early. You are not guaranteed a spot in your neighborhood school and programs can fill up quickly. Districts are enrolling now for fall TK and Kindergarten classes. Contact your local school district for more information.

What to Do When You Have

a Concern About Your

Child’s Development

Every child is different and grows and develops at their own pace. Sometimes, though, children may be delayed in reaching a milestone or you notice something that worries you. Early screening and interventions are important and prepare children to be healthy, successful, and ready for school. There are many supports to help assess and encourage healthy development. Early Start services are available for children 0-2 and local public school districts and Alta Regional provide assessment and support from the age of 3 up.


It can be overwhelming to navigate services or even know where to start. If you are concerned about your child’s development contact Help Me Grow Sacramento. They will help you understand your child’s development and connect you to the agencies and services that best meet your child’s needs.

Family Resource Information

According to the CDC, about one in six children in the United States have “one or more developmental disabilities or other developmental delays.” These conditions begin before the age of 18, have an impact on daily life, and generally last throughout a person’s life.

Alta California Regional Center assists individuals with specific developmental disabilities and their families in accessing appropriate services so that every individual can live up to their highest potential. 

From Warmline's website:

WarmLine was founded by and is staffed by parents who share the common experience of parenting a child with developmental delays or disabilities.

There is no charge and no referral needed. Call Warmline at 916-455-9500 or send an email.

Book Reviews

It’s cold and rainy, it’s hard to get outside. Children still want to move, even if it feels like it would be easier if everyone snuggled in to listen quietly to a story. 

Try a few books that encourage movement and capture the imagination.

March: A Special Time to Honor Women

March is Women's History Month. March 8th is International Women's Day.

Geraldyn “Jerrie” Cobb: the first woman to pass astronaut testing in 1961.

Rosa Parks, Claudette Colvin: took a stand by refusing to give up their seats.

Sally Ride: the first woman in space.

Deloris Clara Fernandez Huerta: labor leader and activist.

These women and millions of others who have nurtured babies, stood up for what they believed in, contributed to their communities, and challenged their own fears deserve our applause and gratitude.

Please join Child Action, Inc, as we recognize women’s contributions throughout history, and remember their accomplishments should be celebrated, not only in the month of March, but all year round.
