First 5 New Parent Kit content image

Expecting a baby is an exciting time!

The FREE Kit for New Parents recognizes parents as their child’s first and most important teacher and includes practical information on good health, loving relationships and early learning opportunities. Kits are customized for Calaveras County residents to include local information on services and resources.

Community organizations throughout Calaveras County distribute the Kit to new and expecting parents and their children through age five - some offer parents additional support to expand on its contents.
