Fairfax Futures is uniquely positioned to foster cross-sector collaboration in support of early childhood education and school readiness in our county.
We bring together business, education and government leaders to explore issues related to early learning and school readiness through our business outreach.
Fairfax Futures offers early childhood educators training opportunities, mentoring and classroom resources. Among our Programs are the Annual School Readiness Symposium, a mentoring initiative, and a multi-faceted initiative on incorporating science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) in early childhood classrooms.
Fairfax Futures collaborates with partners in government, the private sector and within the nonprofit community to support the goals and objectives of Fairfax County's Equitable School Readiness Strategic Plan, adopted in 2017 to ensure the school readiness of all children in Fairfax County, regardless of economic, cultural or ethnic background.
Through the 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.
Fairfax Futures lends its voice and advocates on behalf of accessible, high-quality early childhood education.
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 and as an investment in a ready workforce for the future.
Our goal is to raise awareness and build support for quality early childhood education and school readiness in Fairfax County.
