Welcome to the Virginia Early Childhood Policy Center at ODU. We believe that ensuring the wellbeing of Virginia's youngest citizens is crucial to the long-term success and vitality of our commonwealth. To that end, our work focuses on developing and sharing with lawmakers, business leaders, and the general public resources related to important early childhood issues.
The commonwealth of Virginia is unique in its socioeconomic and demographic diversity, and the VECPC hopes to establish itself as a leading source for information on the specific needs of the varied groups of children and their families located throughout the commonwealth. We invite you to explore and make use of our site's developing contents in order to make life better for Virginia's young children.
