the Sonoma County Board of Supervisors

families find quality child care for their children, with women entering the work force in increasing numbers; and
Whereas, within two years, RCCS had qualified for funding from the Department of Education, and had worked with dozens of providers to begin
Family Child Care centers – in the years since RCCS has continued to help new providers start their small business and provided ongoing support and
training for continuing education and improvement; and
Whereas, RCCS moved to its permanent home in the 1990’s, and expanded its program offerings to include a food pantry and emergency housing
assistance, kindergym and swim programs, a community computer lab, along with literacy, counseling, and tax assistance programs, responding to
the increasing demands on working families with children; and
Whereas, following their guiding philosophy of meeting the needs of their community, River to Coast Children’s Services has become a valuable
asset, supported by a community Board, and contributing to improving the lives of countless families, children, and child care center operators, thus
impacting and improving outcomes for all.
Now, Therefore, Be It Resolved that the Board of Supervisors of the County of Sonoma commends River to Coast Children’s Services on thirty-five
years of providing essential services to working families and their children, and congratulates RCCS on its 35th anniversary.

Car Safety Seat Law Changes!
Senate Bill 929 (Evans) becomes effective January 1, 2012, which will increase the booster seat requirement to age 8. This bill
will also specify that a child under 8 years old of age who is 4 feet 9 inches in height or taller may be properly restrained by a
safety belt rather then a child passenger restraint system. After January 1, 2012 transporting a child under 8 years old and shorter
than 4 feet 9 inches with no appropriate child passenger restraint system (Booster) will be against the law.
La ley de los asientos de seguridad cambia!!!
Aprobada por el gobernador Jerry Brown el 4 de octubre de 2011, La nueva medida SB 929 (Evans) comenzara a implementarse
el primero de enero de 2012, la que requerirá que los niños permanezcan en un asiento de elevación (Booster) asta los 8 años
de edad. Este proyecto de ley también especifica que un niño menor de 8 años de edad, que mida 4 pies y 9 pulgadas de altura
o más altos podrán usar un cinturón de seguridad en lugar de un sistema de retención infantil. Después de 01 de enero 2012 el
transportar un niño menor de 8 años y que mida menos de 4 pies y 9 pulgadas sin sistema de retención adecuado para pasajeros
infantiles (Booster) será en contra de la ley.

Naturally, you want your children to have a safe play environment with safe toys. Did you know that in 2009, there
were an estimated 181,900 toy-related injuries? And that children under 5 accounted for nearly half of these injuries?
Do your children like small play balls and balloons? These kinds of toys account for many choking deaths. Do your children like riding toys – unpowered scooters or tricycles? They are associated with more injuries than any other toy group;
in fact half of the toy-related injuries treated in emergency rooms were caused by unpowered riding toys. In addition
to other hazards, any electrical toy is a potential burn hazard. Make sure your children play safely by following some
simple safety tips.
Top Toy Safety Tips from Safe Kids USA
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
Be sure your children play with toys that are age-appropriate. Read the warning labels before buying
toys for your children.
Look for well-made toys
Check toys regularly for damage that could create hazards. Repair or discard damaged toys immediately.
Make sure that discarded toys are out of children’s reach.
Watch your children while they play. Be aware of potential dangers like small parts, cords and strings,
moving parts, electrical or battery-powered cords or wheels
Do not allow riding toys near stairs, traffic or swimming pools
Teach children to put toys away after playing. Toys intended for younger children should be stored
separately from those suitable for older children
Make sure toy chests are open (no lid) or have safety hinges.

Por supuesto, usted quiere que sus hijos tienen un ambiente de juego seguro con juguetes seguros. ¿Sabía usted que
en el año 2009, se estimaba que había 181.900 lesiones relacionadas con juguetes? Y que los niños menores de 5 años
representan casi la mitad de estas lesiones?
¿Sus hijos como pelotas de juego pequeñas y globos? Este tipo de juguetes cuenta de muchas muertes por asfixia. ¿Sus
hijos, como juguetes de montar - sin motor scooters o vehículos de tres ruedas? Ellos están asociados con más lesiones
que cualquier otro grupo de otro juguete, de hecho, la mitad de las lesiones relacionadas con juguetes tratadas en las
salas de emergencia fueron causadas por juguetes de montar sin motor. Además de otros peligros, cualquier juguete
eléctrico es un potencial peligro de quemaduras. Asegúrese de que sus hijos jueguen con seguridad, siguiendo algunos
