Smart Beginnings partnerships bring together community and business leaders, child care providers and families, to work on a local plan to make sure all children are ‘ready’ for kindergarten. When organizations, schools, and families collaborate on this common goal, families are supported, and all children can reach their potential.
These local Smart Beginnings activities build a strong early childhood system.
VECF provides support to local Smart Beginnings across Virginia.
