The Richmond satellite site of the West County First 5 Center, closed since 2018, will not reopen. Initially closed in July 2018 for a seismic retrofit, the satellite site’s closure extended for over two years due to COVID-19. Increasing costs of operating and staffing the site coupled with family attendance were the primary factors that led to the decision to close the site permanently.

First  5 Contra Costa remains committed to serving Richmond families at the West County First 5 Center located in San Pablo, where any family with a child ages 0-5 can attend classes and connect to community resource specialists. For families where travel to San Pablo is not possible or ideal, the West County First 5 Center will continue to provide remote and online programs. Additionally, we will utilize our long standing  partnership with agencies and organizations that serve families and young children to  broaden our reach in Richmond and West County.
