We realize the importance of Virginia Beach children being ready to succeed in school and in life when they enroll in kindergarten. Last year, our GrowSmart program was honored with an Outstanding Achievement in Innovation Award by the national Alliance for Innovation. I cannot overstate the importance of preparing our youth for success before they begin school — and even before they are born. GrowSmart promotes the healthy development and school readiness of young children. The bigger picture… It’s a vital part of our workforce development strategy, laying the foundation for our babies to excel as 21st century learners, workers and citizens.
