First Five

About Us

The Children and Families Commission for San Bernardino County (First 5 San Bernardino) was created in December, 1998 in order to realize the benefits of Proposition 10 (California Children and Families Act) for the County’s youngest residents and their families. The act created a program for the purpose of promoting, supporting, and improving the early development of children from the prenatal stage to five years of age, under the guidance of the Children and Families Commission for San Bernardino, and in collaboration with the community and agencies providing services to children.
Our Vision:
All children in San Bernardino County are healthy, safe, nurtured, eager to learn and ready to succeed.
Our Mission:
Promote, support and enhance the health and early development of children prenatal through age five and their families and communities.
