Family Involvement

Simple activities such as going to the park or building blocks together at home is an enjoyable experience for a young child.  These may seem like activities you might not have time for, but they are the fundamental things that help your child grow up to be happy, healthy, and successful in life .  

Although interacting with your little one is important, life is also busy. This is why First 5 Madera County offers resources and simple tips to help parents to ensure their child has the best start in life.
