Early Learning

Early experiences matter. Children’s brains are influenced and shaped by experiences starting at birth.

High quality early learning opportunities during the first 5 years of life are critical to preparing children to enter school ready to succeed.  By kindergarten, 90% of the brain has already developed. First 5 Fresno County focuses on increasing the number and capacity of quality early learning programs countywide.

Investing in high quality early learning experiences is key to our community’s health and wellbeing.

When we invest in teachers and caregivers the quality of early care and education is raised for all children.  We partner with the Fresno Accreditation Institute to provide training and coaching to child care professionals pursuing quality improvement.  With high quality early education programs throughout our community, children will benefit for years to come.
