In 2005, First 5 Monterey County identified Early Learning Opportunities as a focus area for funding with the goal of supporting local programs that reach children in many areas of their life such as family, child care, neighborhoods, and local and state policies, to name a few. Early Learning Opportunities programs are based in the understanding that the family is central to the healthy development of a child.
