Who We Are
Foundation First is led by a dedicated, passionate team with extensive early childhood education knowledge and expertise. The Foundation First team is supported by an active volunteer Board comprised of community leaders, local business leaders, educational institutions, non-profit organizations, and local and state governments. We bring together families, businesses, community organizations and state and local agencies to strengthen existing early childhood education programs and implement new approaches where needed.
Foundation First serves the cities of Fredericksburg, Manassas and Manassas Park and the counties of Loudoun, Fauquier, Culpeper, Caroline, King George, Prince William, Spotsylvania and Stafford. We are actively aware that only 1 in 4 children in our region arrive in kindergarten with the basic skills to succeed. The lack of these foundational skills can impact their educational journey, their future success in the workplace, their personal health and their ability to thrive as an adult. We believe that supporting early childhood education is a smart investment with a proven return.
We are committed to transforming their lives because we know it will change our world.
