Smart Beginnings of Roanoke Valley held a seminar on Saturday in Roanoke, where early childhood educators and day care providers from all over the region gathered to learn new strategies for providing successful early childhood education. Smart Beginnings consist of community leaders from businesses, non-profit organizations, school systems and private individuals who work together to prepare every child in our area with the appropriate skills
necessary to succeed in school upon entering kindergarten.
