First 5 Neighborhoods for Learning, Powered by Interface

Neighborhoods for Learning offer PACT classes and more!

We’re in your neighborhood. Throughout Ventura County, the First 5 Neighborhoods for Learning, Powered by Interface (NfLs) are helping families raise children who are healthy, nurtured, and prepared for kindergarten. The NfLs are hosting Open Houses and enrolling in classes NOW!

We will continue to offer PACT (Parent and Child Together) classes and resources for your family. Families will still be able to access screenings, referrals, parent education, and more in familiar, high-quality settings. Many preschool locations will also remain open, and preschool scholarships will be available in Moorpark, Simi Valley, Port Hueneme, and Ojai Valley.
