First Steps is a network of early childhood educators and service providers in the NRV working to strengthen connections in support of children and families. To expand our network and share resources, we’re holding a series of information sessions for any individuals or organizations who serve young children and their caregivers. Our Blacksburg and Christiansburg sessions have attracted 35+ participants, with rich conversation and great resources. Each session will focus on similar themes, but speakers will vary, so join us for as many sessions as you can.

This free session will include:
Light breakfast and networking beginning at 8:30 am
7-Minute “Lightning Round” talks from service providers on:
Health & Wellness
Enrichment/Afterschool Programming
Trauma Education & Prevention
Family Education & Support
Special Education & School Readiness
Table conversation with speakers and colleagues

This is a great opportunity to learn about other agencies and the resources available to you and your clients. Teachers, healthcare professionals, social service providers and more are encouraged to attend.  Please note that parking for the event is available in the Food Lion lot across the street from the library.
