A new equation for Hampton Roads' Youngest Residents
A child GROWS, DEVELOPS and LEARNS from the time a woman discovers she’s pregnant through the child’s fifth birthday. Preparing Hampton Roads' families from CONCEPTION TO KINDERGARTEN is exactly why Minus 9 to 5 exists.
Minus 9 to 5 unites a variety of COMMUNITY STAKEHOLDERS dedicated to improving the lives of our region’s youngest residents and their families. Learn how Virginia residents and organizations—from Chesapeake, Norfolk, Portsmouth, Suffolk and Virginia Beach—have joined together to ALIGN and COORDINATE PROGRAMS and services focused on young children and their families.
Minus 9 to 5 needs early childhood champions just like you!
