About First 5 Sacramento

Did you know that 90% of a child's brain develops in the first five years?

Research shows that a child's brain develops dramatically during this time and what parents do during these years to support their child's growth will have a meaningful impact throughout life.

First 5 believes all young children deserve to be healthy, happy and ready to learn. Californians do too; that's why voters passed Proposition 10 and created First 5 in 1998. For the past 20 years, First 5 across the state have touched the lives of more than a million kids, plus their families and caregivers.

Our Vis​​​ion

Sacramento County will have strong communities where children are safe, healthy and reach their full potential.

Our Mission​

In partnership with the community, we support a prevention and early intervention system that promotes optimal health and development, narrows disparities, and improves the lives of children 0 to 5 and their families.​
