We were so pleased to welcome Governor Tim Kaine to Albemarle County on Tuesday, March 4 to visit a Virginia Preschool Initiative (VPI) class of four-year-old children at Cale Elementary School. Before beginning his education roundtable, the governor had an excited audience of 4 year-olds who were eager to read, sit next to and talk to him. It was obvious that both the governor and the students thoroughly enjoyed their reading time together.
The governor met with about 15 community and business leaders to support his proposed expansion of the preschool program statewide. Most of these leaders are already members of the Smart Beginnings Leadership Council, which is working with the Partnership for Children and the United Way to promote school readiness for children through enhancing early care and education for children ages 0-5.
