HOW SMART BEGINNINGS IS TURNING A NEW CORNER
Across the Virginia Peninsula, individuals and organizations are working together to improve conditions for young children prenatal to age five. Our focus is on child health, early care and education and family strengthening using a Collective Impact approach.
Smart Beginnings Virginia Peninsula serves as the backbone organization providing ongoing support to all partners involved in the initiative. Specific stakeholders like parents, caregivers, educators, health professionals, nonprofit leaders and government officials drive the vision and strategies. We can use our energy and knowledge to better coordinate and align services across existing programs. We can use data and stories to implement strategies to measure over time, so all children will succeed in school and in life.
