Video: Bianca & Sofia’s Story
This is a story of healthy beginnings and the joy of learning through play.
Bianca started to bring her daughter Sofia to the Niños Activos program at UpValley Family Center in Calistoga when Sofia was just 14 months old.
Sofia has thrived in this social setting, playing with other children, learning numbers and ABCs, surrounded by caring adults. Bianca and her husband have also thrived, connecting with other parents, finding guidance on their child’s development and making friends in their community.
Without the Niños Activos program, Bianca and Sofia would either need to travel far outside their community or simply not have access to high-cost child development programs that set the stage for kindergarten readiness and a child’s future success.
