Investing in School Readiness
Our Approach

Our Approach

Fairfax Futures is uniquely positioned to foster collaboration in support of early childhood education and school readiness in our county.

We raise awareness about the critical role that quality early childhood education plays in promoting academic and lifelong success.

Our Leadership Forum brings together business, education and government leaders to explore issues related to early learning and school readiness.

We support the professional development of early childhood educators who work in partnership with families to ensure young children’s school readiness in our county.

The Annual School Readiness Symposium is a daylong program for early childhood educators. Topics presented have included literacy, science and math, the arts, play and nature.

More than 200 family child care providers have been trained to assess and promote children’s social, emotional and cognitive development.

We foster increased collaboration among our schools, county and community to tackle the achievement gap before children enter the school system. We help sustain replicable models that promote systemic change in support of early education and school readiness.

Through our Neighborhood School Readiness Project, we forge relationships between local schools, community resources, early childhood educators and families to ensure that children are well prepared for a smooth transition to kindergarten.

We advocate and forge partnerships with business, government and community to ensure a continuum of high-quality educational opportunities for children in Fairfax County, beginning at birth.

Fairfax Futures lends its voice and advocates on behalf of accessible, high-quality early education in our county.

Our organization engages with local, state and national chambers of commerce and other business organizations that recognize the importance of early education as part of a comprehensive education agenda.

Our goal is to raise awareness and build support for quality early childhood education and school readiness in Fairfax County.
