Washington Post - ODU launches Virginia Early Childhood Policy Center

By Associated Press

NORFOLK, Va. - Old Dominion University's education college has launched an early childhood policy center.

The university says the policy center's mission will be to conduct research leading to positive changes in early childhood policy in the commonwealth.

The school says the center is the only one of its kind in Virginia, and will focus on education, health, family support services and special populations.

The center will create a comprehensive report on the state of early childhood in Virginia by the end of this year.

Startup funding for the Virginia Early Childhood Policy Center was provided by the ODU Perry Fund for the Study of Critical Issues.
