Looking for Early Child Care and Education?
Please note: If a program has openings available this does not guarantee eligibility or placement at that particular location.
Early childhood experiences, ages birth to 5, provide children with what they need to be ready for school and ready for life. Across Southwest Virginia and in your community, there are many opportunities for your child to be part of a rich learning environment where they can grow to their optimal potential. Early childhood care and education services are provided across a diverse array of settings, including Child Care Centers, Family Day Homes, Head Starts and School Systems (VPI). Navigating your choices can be difficult, but United Way of Southwest Virginia has one way to help. While we cannot enroll your child in a program or make recommendations about the best choice, we can connect you to programs in your area. Continue to scroll to learn more about the types of Early Care and Education classrooms and then look for your county to see what is available near where you live or work.
