DO YOU KNOW ABOUT YOUR DENTAL BENEFITS?
Children should start receiving preventative dental services as soon as their first tooth appears or by age 1! Pregnant mothers also need dental care as their health affects the health of their unborn child. Learn more about dental benefits under Medi-Cal or Covered California.
READ ALOUD EVERY DAY - IT MATTERS
Reading a little every day can make a huge difference in a child's development. This summer, parents and caregivers are encouraged to use the ReadAloud tracker (also available in Spanish) to track your reading with little ones and watch the minutes add up!
LOOKING FOR SUPPORT AND RESOURCES?
First 5 Riverside supports early learning, child health and family strengthening so all Riverside County children through age 5 can build a strong foundation for success in school and beyond. See our directory of grantees and partner programs and services in Riverside County.
