First 5 Launches New Online Resource for Parents 

Executive Director Kim Medeiros discusses the Parent Summit


Parent Portal

Looking for a healthy recipe, oral health tips, or the number of words to talk to your child? First 5 San Diego’s Parent Portal is a new, free online resource available for parents to help them with their child’s healthy development. 

“Parenting doesn’t come with a manual,” said Kim Medeiros, executive director of First 5 San Diego.  “We hope that this new online tool will help guide parents and caregivers raise happy, healthy children.”

The site was developed as a supplement to the First 5 San Diego Parent Summit, which was held in October 2014. 

“With such a high turnout at the inaugural event, there was a clear demand for resources that could help parents tackle the demands of parenthood,” said Medeiros. 

The portal is part of, which recently won the Web Marketing Association’s Award for Outstanding Achievement for website development.  Other online resources include Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest (@First5SanDiego) and Twitter (@First5SD).
