Coordinated Enrollment Services
Why Coordinated Enrollment?
Building Systems that Work for Families, Early Educators, and Communities
Coordinated enrollment is part of a broader vision for building Virginia’s unified system that ensures access to high-quality early childhood care and education (ECCE) for all Virginia families. ECCE providers serve children in a variety of settings. Private businesses (child care centers and family day homes) may offer early education, in programs administered through school systems, as part of Head Start or Early Head Start programs, through local municipalities, and in mixed delivery settings.
Families often do not know the range of ECCE options that are available to them. They may visit many websites, make multiple calls, apply to several ECCE programs, and still not receive the needed services. Coordinated enrollment helps alleviate these tensions.
Family voice is integrated throughout coordinated enrollment as a critical driver of the work.
