First 5 Express children’s activity center coming to Truckee

TRUCKEE, Calif. — The Family Resource Center of Truckee will host First 5 Express on Monday, May 16, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Family Resource Center of Truckee at 11695 Donner Pass Road.

First 5 Express is a bilingual children’s activity center that travels across California as part of First 5 California.

The Express inspires 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. Healthy snacks will be provided by First 5 Nevada County.

First 5 Express activities are designed especially for children ages 0 to 5 to help stimulate early brain development. For parents, the Express inspires new ideas for early learning and positive behaviors at home and beyond.

Grab a book and kid-friendly musical instrument for story and music time. Pick a color and draw your favorite picture at a coloring station. Spin the “Sing-Along” wheel and see how well your family can sing a nursery rhyme favorite.

Choose a favorite tune and karaoke to fun styles of music. Free giveaways include resources to help sustain healthy behavior and early learning development.

The Family Resource Center of Truckee invites all families to engage with their young children in bilingual activities at this free family-friendly event open to all community members.
