Born Learning Trails

First 5 Ventura County in partnership with United Way of Ventura County introduced the Born Learning campaign, an innovative public engagement campaign that helps parents, caregivers and communities create quality early learning opportunities for young children in everyday activities.


A part of the campaign are Born Learning Trails, which encourage creative outdoor learning opportunities for young children five and under. Born Learning Trails are located in public spaces accessible to all families in the community. They consist of colorful “stations” that encourage learning and physical activity for a young child and parent (or caregiver) to do together.


The current Born Learning trails are strategically located in parks nearby a First 5 NfL, where young children and their families often attend early education, early learning and parent education classes or are connected with local resources for health, developmental screenings, oral health and nutrition.

Through partnerships with Parks and Recreation Departments and community volunteers, First 5 and United Way have thus far installed Born Learning Trails in four communities in Ventura County.
