Antioch First 5 Center

Where all families with young children in Contra Costa are welcome!

Become a part of a diverse community where pregnant and parenting families connect, learn, play and grow together during their child’s first 5 years! 

The Antioch First 5 Center is a family resource center for moms, dads, grandparents or other adult caregivers and their children from birth to age 5. It is a place for everyone in a child’s life! 

It’s a place to connect with other families, learn what to expect from a child at different stages of their development, support your child’s learning in preparation for school and life, and learn about a variety of community services.

Whether you attend a class, workshop, come to an event, or meet one-on-one with our staff, there is truly something for everyone. Our First 5 Centers offer in-person and virtual activities to meet families’ busy lifestyles and schedules. The Center is open to any Contra Costa resident with a child from birth to age 5 in their lives.
