Smart Beginnings works with more than 100+ partner organizations on a daily basis. Quarterly, we come together to discuss what’s going on in the sector, challenges, successes, barriers and make connections. Those meetings for 2021 will be:
Transition from VDSS to VDOE
New Virginia Quality Birth to Five (VQB5)
New Subsidy Eligibility
Smart Beginnings Greater Richmond supports six locality groups. Their individual missions are closely aligned with the Virginia Department of Education. Each coalition strives to assist children and families with developing foundational skills and providing resources to help promote student success in kindergarten and beyond.
