First 5 LA’s North Star cannot be achieved alone. That’s why First 5 LA is partnering with parents, communities, public agencies, local organizations and other funders to work together to ensure that every child in Los Angeles County will reach their full developmental potential throughout the critical years of prenatal to age 5. Below is a list of our current initiatives that are working towards achieving this goal.
The Los Angeles County AAIMM Initiative is a countywide coalition dedicated to addressing the disproportionately high rates of Black infant and maternal deaths and ensuring healthy and joyous births for Black families in L.A. County.
As a way to evaluate and improve the quality of early learning programs, states across the country have begun to implement the Quality Rating and Improvement System (QRIS). Participation in QRIS helps families identify high-quality programs and helps programs to improve their quality of care for participants.
The Link model supports community-led organizations in building civic and planning capacity to access funding for parks and other forms of public infrastructure in a way that addresses the priorities of residents and families in the communities where it’s needed the most.
First 5 LA is working with Quality Start Los Angeles and funder First 5 California to celebrate and better support dual language learners from birth to age 5 with the launch of the Dual Language Learner (DLL) Initiative.
