First 5 Traveling Children's Activity Center Heads to Oxnard
First 5 Express will be hosting fun educational children's activities to foster early childhood development
By: First 5 Ventura County
The First 5 Express is a bilingual children's activity center that travels across California to inspire families to understand the importance of a child's earliest years and the positive impact they can have on brain development through talking, reading, and singing. The event is ideal for children ages 5 and under.
"We like to focus on supplemental development, child literacy and getting habits started early," said Elizabeth, a staff member of First 5 Express. "We read, color, sing and give the kids bilingual stories to take home, along with a maraca to make music at home with their families."
Various activities offered include coloring stations, story and music time, karaoke and the "Sing-Along"
Additionally, The First 5 Express will be at The Camarillo Library celebrating Comic-con on November 9 from 10 a.m. – 5 p.m. Costumes are encouraged as children of all ages are invited to join in the fun for mini-workshops, games and virtual reality demos.

About First 5 Ventura County
Research shows that a child's brain develops most dramatically in the first five years and what parents and caregivers do during these years to support their child's growth will have a significant impact throughout life. Based on this research, First 5 Ventura County was created by voters in 1998 to invest Ventura County's allocation of funds from California's voter-approved Proposition 10 tax 50 cents-per-pack tax on tobacco. F5VC invests these revenues in programs and services for children prenatal -5 that support children's health, early learning, and strong families, including our nationally recognized Neighborhoods for Learning (NfLs).
