First 5 Contra Costa is improving how First 5 Center services are delivered in East County in order to serve more families. We are shifting from funding three small centers to funding two large regional centers in Antioch and Pittsburg. This transition will take time and occur in stages. We will continue providing First 5 Center programs and activities for East County families during this transition, and for years to come.

December 2017 Update

East County First 5 Center (serving Bay Point and Pittsburg)

We purchased a building to house the new regional East County First 5 Center in Pittsburg, and will start renovations soon to make the site just right for families with young children. Classes are continuing at the First 5 Center in Bay Point (3225 Willow Pass Road) until the new site opens, which could take up to a year.

For more information, contact (925) 301-4040 or follow the East County First 5 Center on Facebook.

Antioch/Delta First 5 Centers (serving Antioch and far-East County)

First 5 Center classes are moving to a new location in downtown Antioch soon. In the meantime, First 5 Center classes and activities are planned at nearby locations in January and February 2018.

Long-term, we plan to open a much larger First 5 Center in Antioch. We’ve started meeting with a group of parents to consult us on locations and will have more community input sessions in 2018. Classes will continue in Antioch and Brentwood until the new regional First 5 Center opens.
