A message from Bright Beginnings Central VA
BBCV staff are transitioning back to in-office operations. Staff will be in the office on Tuesday and Thursdays, and Friday mornings. The majority of meetings will continue to be held virtually, although some in-person meetings will also take place.
We are evaluating the possibility of in-person professional development programs, including our annual conference. No decisions have been made at this time.
We appreciate the Early Care and Education Providers who have contacted BBCV and expressed their willingness to help the community during this crisis, especially as the need for childcare has grown.
We at BBCV, along with our community, country and the world, look forward to the complete end of this crisis and the return to normal programming. Until then, please stay safe and healthy.
The Dolly Parton Imagination Library through Bright Beginnings CV at the United Way of Central Virginia, is offered to children from birth through age five who reside in the counties of Amherst, Appomattox, Bedford or Campbell.
Registrations are temporarily suspended in the counties of Amherst, Appomattox and Bedford due to limited funding. We hope to resume registrations in these counties as soon as possible.
Bright Beginnings extends its sincere gratitude to the Watt Foster Family Foundation for its generous support of the Dolly Parton Imagination Library in Campbell County!
Bright Beginnings CV is accepting applications for a Coordinated Enrollment Assistant.
