for Learning

Providing Parent and Child Together classes and resources for your family.

Throughout Ventura County, the First 5 Neighborhoods for Learning (NfLs) are helping families raise children who are healthy, nurtured, and prepared for kindergarten. We offer Parent and Child Together (PACT) classes, screenings, referrals, parent education, resources and more for your family. Call 805-869-1317 or email to learn more.

Recognized nationally for excellence, NfLs are resource hubs supporting children prenatal through age five and their families. A child’s brain develops faster from birth to age three than at any other period in life, building the foundation for a child’s future learning, behavior, and health. Parents and other caregivers can play a lead role in their child’s healthy development, but often they are stretched in the earliest months and years of their child’s life. The impact of parents may never be greater than during the earliest years of life.
