Virginia First Lady Pamela Northam (pictured above) toured three preschools in the Charlottesville area this week that exemplify affordable, high-quality early education in our area — Barrett Early Learning Center, Piedmont YMCA Early Learning Center, and JABA’s hining Star Preschool. All are beneficiaries of the Local Preschool Development Grant administered by United Way-Thomas Jefferson Area.

“Building out a robust accessible affordable early education system is a priority I think for all Virginians. The United Way has been leading a coalition in the Charlottesville area to expand access and quality and affordability for early care,” said United Way-Thomas Jefferson Area Board Chair Mike Chinn.
