Smart Beginnings Martinsville Henry is one of 18 regional initiatives in Virginia charged to convene the area's early childhood network of stakeholders, who work together to ensure that all children entering kindergarten are healthy, well-cared for and ready to learn.
- Increase the availability of quality learning for children birth to age five
- Improve access to evidence-based and evidence-informed programs and practices to support healthy child development
- Increase availability and access to evidence-based and evidence-informed services for families with prenatal to five year old children challenged by multiple risk factors
These goals are key to advancing our strategic priorities in education.
