|We'll See You at the 2016 Solano County Fair |
The First 5 Solano GIANT Sandbox is back by popular demand!
Join us at the Solano County Fair on July 27-31st at the Solano County Fairgrounds in Vallejo. Children can dig for "dinosaur fossils" and earn prizes while parents enjoy a shaded seating area.
Bring Out the Backpack!
Children are always growing and developing. Just because your child isn't in school, doesn't mean they can't be learning! Their brain is constantly growing and absorbing new information from the world around them. Help them grow and learn by dong at least one of these activities every day:
- Reading an age appropriate book
- Practicing numbers and counting
- Singing the ABCs
- Writing their name and the alphabet
Above all, make sure you are making learning fun and engaging for your child. The more fun they have the more they will want to learn!
Foundation Study Report Released
As reported in a recent KQED news article, a report by Applied Survey Research, “Foundation Giving in the Bay Area: Who Wins and Who’s Left Behind,” Solano County has the highest rate of families in poverty and the lowest rate of foundation giving among the nine Bay Area Counties.
The study found that when compared to a similar study conducted a decade ago by the James Irvine Foundation entitled “Giving in California,” nothing has changed in the past ten years....Solano County ranked last then too. Continued research to examine causes related to this issue will be conducted and included in a follow-up report at a later time.
