First 5 LA is an independent county agency in Los Angeles that advocates on behalf of parents with young children to help every child, prenatal to age 5, be healthier, safer, and better prepared for kindergarten. Knowing 90% of a child’s brain is developed by age 5, First 5 LA partners with parents, community organizations, and other county agencies to help elected officials prioritize funding for early childhood education, health care, and other services that young children and their parents need.
First 5 LA also provides funding for parent coaches to visit newborn babies and their parents in their homes, supports parents who are trying to make their neighborhoods better for families, helps early childhood educators get the training they need, and shares parenting tips and resources.
