Together, let's make a collective impact.

Rather than looking for one solution or funding a single program, Collective Impact brings together diverse organizations and individuals—like you—across the Virginia Peninsula to accomplish common goals. This model helps us all work together to improve conditions for young children, prenatal to age five. Our focus is on child health, early care and education and family strengthening.

 

Smart Beginnings Virginia Peninsula serves as the backbone organization providing ongoing support to all partners involved in the initiative.

The ultimate resource for early childhood professionals

Smart Beginnings Virginia Peninsula reaches out to regulated family day home child care providers, child care centers and preschools in Newport News, Hampton and beyond.

 

Whether you are a provider, teacher, academician or other professional working in the field of early care and education, we will provide you with up-to-date information that can support you in your work. Take advantage of our free and low-cost professional development, as well as assistance to become regulated and much more.
