Smart Beginnings Greater Richmond, a regional school readiness initiative, recently received a $100,000 grant from the Virginia Early Childhood Foundation (VECF) to support strategies that engage families, improve equitable access to services and resources, and leverage effective public/private collaboration to support opportunities for the healthy development of young children. As the regional convener for early childhood education, Smart Beginnings Greater Richmond represents a partnership among public and private agencies, businesses and individuals serving the cities of Richmond and Colonial Heights, as well as Chesterfield, Charles City, Goochland, Hanover, Henrico, New Kent and Powhatan counties.
