First 5 agencies throughout the state have been getting some pub lately. Below are a handful of such articles...

  • First 5 LA Director of Communications Gabriel Sanchez recently penned a column on Fox & Hounds, calling attention to the rise in "Parent-Lawmakers" throughout the state.
  • This article addresses how declining smoking rates are impacting First 5 and what the future may hold in that regard.
  • This article stresses that although expanding early childhood education is important, it's equally important that such an expansion focuses on quality. First 5 is referenced in the article, and for good reason. Early childhood education has been a First 5 initiative for most of its existence.
  • And in case you ever wondered why Googling "First 5 Orange County" never yielded any results, here you go. Congrats on the name change and new logo!
