Our Partnering Sites

Early Learning Center

The California State Preschool for the Markleeville and Hung A Lel Ti communities, serving infants, toddlers, and children pre-K. We partner with ACUSD to prepare these young students to advance school readiness as they enter elementary school.

Bear Valley Parents Group

We are proud to support the Bear Valley Parents Group who run the Busy Bears preschool in the small community of Bear Valley. As the sole pre-K learning environment, First 5 supports their team so we can truly serve all children in our rural county.

Emerging Programs


Access to Prenatal and Newborn Education

We are launching a program to offer local moms-to-be and families an extensive guide to useful tools and critical research to help them start of their child's development with knowledge and support.

Oral Health, Nutrition, and Enhanced Well-being

First 5 is now teaming up with Alpine County Health and Human Services and Community Service Solutions to be offering more prevention education throughout the community.


School Readiness on the Rise

The research shows how the almost 90% of a child's brain development is completed before the start of Kindergarten. At First 5, we are directing more time, effort, and focus on bolstering our work to elevate school readiness for the sprouting students leading the next generation.
