Early Obesity Prevention
Because the first 5 years impact a lifetime, First 5 Ventura County believes that investing in the early years is the key to children's success in school and in life. We also believe that local neighborhoods and communities can lead the way in shaping the future of their children. Neighborhoods for Learning (NfLs) are parents, schools, early childhood educators, and service providers working together to offer a web of support for young children and families designed by and for each community.
We're in your neighborhood. From Oak Park to Oxnard to Ojai (click for map), NfLs are offering services that support families to raise children who are emotionally, socially, and academically ready for school. NfLs offer a variety of services to children ages 0-5 and their families including preschools, family resource centers, early learning activities, access to health services, dental treatment, mental health services, and parent education.
