ABINGDON, Va. -

Smart Beginnings Virginia Highlands along with Washington County Virginia Public Schools, Bristol Virginia Public Schools, Head Start, and Bristol Department of Social Services will hold an inaugural Pre-K Registration Fair on Tuesday, March 19th from 5:30-7:30 p.m. at the Southwest Virginia Higher Education Center. 

Smart Beginnings Virginia Highlands is a community-based, state-supported initiative through the Virginia Early Childhood Foundation that strives to ensure all children enter kindergarten healthy and ready to learn.

By linking local services and resources that support children birth to age 5 and their families, and by coordinating local efforts with state agencies, this community collaborative strives to eliminate gaps in services and the possibility of children "falling through the cracks."
