The Roots of a Great Classroom

November 16, 2019 at CVCC

Smart Beginnings Central Virginia (SBCV) is a regional initiative, serving the counties of Amherst, Appomattox, Bedford, and Campbell, Nelson and the city of Lynchburg.  Each locality has an active Task Force focusing on local needs.


Our Vision:  All Children are supported in getting ready for kindergarten, to lay the building blocks for third grade reading proficiency.


Our Big Goal:  By 2025, 94% of children in Central Virginia will arrive at kindergarten ready to learn, as measured by PALS-PreK.

SBCV serves as a facilitator of conversation and action focusing on the needs of children.


The Smart Beginnings statewide network is guided by the Virginia Early Childhood Foundation.  Learn More
