What is Mixed Delivery?​

High-quality early care and education can have a powerful impact on a child’s readiness for school and life. Mixed Delivery allows for parent choice among high quality options that meet the needs of their child and family. In 2016, with support from the Governor and the Virginia General Assembly, VECF launched the Mixed Delivery Preschool Pilot Program to support public-private preschool delivery. In 2020, building on the success of these Mixed Delivery pilots, the program expanded with a new focus on increasing access and funding for preschool (3- and 4-year old) slots in private child care programs. In 2022, Mixed Delivery expanded by piloting services for infants and toddlers.

Child care is not a nice-to have, it’s a must-have. Child care should be convenient, affordable and available in every neighborhood.
