Is Your Child’s Center Participating in Virginia Quality?


Smart Beginnings Rappahannock Area is working to increase the number of preschools and early learning centers that participate in Virginia Quality. This is a voluntary program that assesses, improves and communicates the level of quality in early care and education settings. Participating providers are demonstrating their commitment to quality beyond expectation or requirement. Programs are given tools to improve their quality through mentoring and other assistance. If you would like to learn more about having a preschool or early learning center rated, contact Janine Sewell at or call (540) 479-6944.
