The Virginia Early Childhood Foundation has launched a transformative statewide network of Ready Regions that will bring all of the Commonwealth’s communities together to support early childhood success. The City of Alexandria is part of Ready Region Capital Area and includes Arlington County, Fairfax County, Falls Church City, and City of Fairfax.
Ready Regions will be a community collaboration to prioritize high quality child care and early childhood education. Ready Region Capital Area partners include early childhood programs, school divisions, parents, community organizations, local governments, businesses and other key stakeholders. Partners will work together to coordinate services and resources for families with young children and bring new resources and support to early childhood programs. An important component of the Ready Regions’ effort will be to support the participation of publicly funded early childhood programs in Virginia’s quality measurement and improvement system.
