About First 5 Permian Basin

First 5 Permian Basin is a part of the Department of Community and Family Health in UT Permian Basin’s College of Health Sciences and Human Performance (CoHSHP). It differs from other programs in CoHSHP as it is not a UT Permian Basin academic program. First 5’s focus is on education for children during the critical learning years before they enter grade school. The program is important to the area because over half of West Texas children are not prepared when they enter kindergarten.   

First 5 provides three FREE programs to families:  

  • Home Instruction for Parents of Preschool Youngsters (HIPPY)
  • Nurse-Family Partnership (NFP)
  • Parents as Teachers (PAT)

Programs include a personal educator, access to high-quality curriculum and lessons, parent and child screenings/assessments, and a diverse resource network to provide young West Texans a solid learning foundation.
