System Alignment

System Alignment

Promote our collective early care and education vision through collaborative strategic planning, data-driven decision making, sustainable funding, and policy.

Current Initiatives

The Preschool Development Grant Birth to Five (PDG B-5), funded by a multi-year federal grant, is supporting our efforts to build an equitable early childhood system that delivers stable, affordable, and high-quality early care and education for families and children. The goals of this grant align with the goals of Kids’ First Years: to build relationships that foster rich cross-sector and cross-systems partnerships (including family supports, social services, health, and mental health), to increase access to maximize family choice and information, to strengthen quality to ensure an effective, supported early childhood workforce, and to engage families as designers of the system.

This effort is supported by a partnership between the Virginia Department of Education (VDOE), Virginia Early Childhood Foundation (VECF), and the University of Virginia (UVA).
