The Commission believes and research supports conventional wisdom – family is a child’s first teacher. Teachers need resources.

First 5 California has a website of resources, the first place to go for everything children 0-5.

North State Parent publishes an annual Family Resource Guide. Whether you are looking for a pediatrician, your next birthday destination or a discount grocery store, this guide has information for you.

First 5 Butte County Listens to Families!

In order to make informed decisions, First 5 Butte County Commissioners listen to what families have to say. As part of the strategic planning process Commissioners attended numerous meetings with parents and families in Chico, Oroville, Gridley and Paradise. The feedback that Commissioners received had a great impact on their understanding of the struggles and successes of many families and a great impact on their decision making. Find out what families said and what Commissioners did about it.

We want to hear from you!

Commission meetings are open to the public. Visitors are always welcome. Check the Commission Calendar for meeting information.
