Who are our community partners?
Smart Beginnings Western Tidewater (SBWT) serves as a convener for a collaboration comprised of members representing various agencies and organizations that impact local early childhood development. Through the successful efforts of SBWT, the Western Tidewater Early Childhood Collaborative has enabled agencies to institute new programs, expand existing programs, receive grant funding, and increase the quality of local provider care.
