Welcome to the Brilliant Baby sign up!

“I am so happy to welcome you into the Oakland Promise Brilliant Baby program!  Brilliant Baby is a resource for parents and guardians during the first critical years of your baby’s life.  Our goal is to support you in putting your child on the path to success in school and life.  

Imagine watching your child walk across the stage to receive their college diploma. Imagine the pride and joy you will feel on that day. The work of preparing our children for academic and life success begins at birth.  It is a long and joyful journey of learning and development.  Thank you for including the Brilliant Baby resources  in your and your child’s life.  We are honored to support you in raising your Brilliant Baby.”

– Mayor Libby Schaaf
