Connecting families and the community with resources to build a strong foundation for success for children 0 through 5 years of age.

Early Childhood Investments Last a Lifetime

Children are learning from the moment they’re born. The first five years are the most rapid period of brain growth, with nearly 90% of brain development occurring by age 5. This remarkable growth happens in response to a baby’s experiences. Experiences in the early years affect the physical structure of the brain and shape the capacities children will have for the rest of their lives.

Investments in the early years, when children’s brains are developing and taking permanent shape, are the best investments we can make. That’s why First 5 Riverside is here.
