At First 5 Placer, we focus on the first 5 years of life.
We fund programs and services to ensure that children are nurtured, healthy, safe, learning, and developmentally reaching their potential. Research proves children who reach their full potential come from families that are strong and connected. Strong families are supported by communities that are caring and responsive.

Your Child's First Teacher . . . YOU!
As parents and caregivers, we are our child's first teacher. Helping our children to have positive learning experiences during their first five years of life increases their chances of success, in and out of school. From birth, children learn from you through simple activities, such as singing, talking, reading, giggling, snuggling, and playing games. Everyday events make a difference: reading a bedtime story each night, singing songs together in the car, sorting laundry, telling stories, or talking about vegetables at the grocery store. Children who are strongly connected to their parents and caregivers are better prepared for school.
