United Way Born Learning Academy


It’s the simple things that make a difference in building a young child’s foundation for success in school and life.
It’s not flash cards or expensive educational toys, it’s making your grocery trip into a treasure hunt for colors and shapes.
Turn bath time into a silly song about body parts. Even dinner can become a learning opportunity, as your toddler builds math skills by counting eggs. Sound simple? Well, that’s the idea—to turn everyday activities into opportunities for parents to encourage learning.

The United Way Born Learning Academy offers you tips, tools and resources to do just that. It’s a series of six free workshops that provide your family with tools and resources to turn everyday activities into early learning moments. The workshops are in the evening in local schools, with food and childcare provided.

Our second series of six weekly classes runs September 29 - November 4, 2022 at Bernard Preschool in Yuba City. It is made possible by YSC United Way, Yuba City Unified School District and the Sutter County Children & Families Commission and other donors.

You can also get ideas from, where you’ll find tips for learning on the go, answers to help care for young children; fact sheets on a child’s ages and stages and more. It’s all in Spanish, too.
