The Community Child Care Council (4 C’s) of Sonoma County received expansion funding from the State Department of Education under AB 3059 to develop a directory of children’s services and establish Resource and Referral Services in Napa County.
The guide to services and programs for young children in Napa County was compiled by 4 C’s in cooperation with the Napa County Commission on the Status of Women and other local agencies. Printed on a variety of colored papers and entitled “Rainbow”, the 102-page book listed day care programs, private elementary schools, and services for children with developmental and special needs. Printed in both English and Spanish, about 600 copies were distributed to local agencies in August 1977.
Project coordinators were Nancy Kael and Judi Egbert.To assist in compiling the directory, a Napa County Advisory Committee consisting of interested individuals representing agencies, child care providers and parents was established. This group not only assisted with the development of the directory but was dedicated to the future development of an information and referral service.
