Elevate Early Education (E3) is coming to the Y on Granby

16 July 2014

The Y has formed a partnership with non-profit organization Elevate Early Education (E3), formerly Smart Beginnings, who will construct a center adjacent to The Y on Granby for preschoolers. E3 will oversee center operations and the Y will assist with property maintenance. This partnership more effectively uses the community’s resources, enabling the Y and E3 to serve more families and children. Click here to view the Faithful Beginnings Readiness Guide.

  • E3 is a statewide advocacy movement dedicated to raising awareness and securing greater public investment for early education.  E3’s operations are privately funded.
  • There is one common denominator among states highly successful in securing greater public investment:  an independent early education advocacy group.  A unified and influential voice from the private sector can move early education policy and funding in a positive direction to amplify the work organizations are doing for Virginia’s children.
  • We are advocating to think differently about doing business for children at a critical time in their development.  That’s why we are working to bring Virginia’s business and civic leaders together to advocate for greater public investment.

The Y is excited about this partnership and the center's scheduled opening in January 2015. Look for more on The Y on Granby Facebook page for upcoming news and details, including a community event being hosted at the Y on Granby on September 27 to celebrate the opening of the facility. *E3 has a Facebook page as well, where you can follow along with the progress.
