First Lady of Virginia Pamela Northam will join other education experts at the Smart Beginnings breakfast for business leaders on March 23
How do a child’s earliest years impact their future success in work and life? Because 90 percent of a child’s brain has developed by age 5, early childhood education is crucial to children and a vital component for building the workforce of tomorrow. Business and community leaders are invited to join First Lady of Virginia Pamela Northam and Dr. Mark Ginsberg, dean of the College of Education and Human Development for George Mason University, at the Early Childhood and Workforce Development breakfast to be held 8-10:30 a.m. on Monday, March 23, 2020, at the Hylton Performing Arts Center.
The event is coordinated by Smart Beginnings Greater Prince William (GPW), a donor-driven nonprofit organization dedicated to advocating for quality early childhood health and education programs for children ages 0-5 years, and working with parents, educators, health providers, and businesses to deliver these resources to prepare children for school and life.
Register today to learn how you can help build a strong future workforce by investing in early childhood education today.
