Sowing Seeds Academy-Varina


What has child care looked like in the time of COVID-19? In the fourth part of our series about the pandemic and its impact on Eastern Henrico, we find out how Sowing Seeds Academy-Varina has adapted.
Quality, reliable childcare is critical for working families and ensures economic viability in our communities. Bridget Holt-Taylor and Crystal Holt wanted to purchase the assets of the former Phase II Neighborhood After School and Child Development Center, to establish Sowing Seeds Academy-Varina.

Located in the Varina community of Eastern Henrico County, Sowing Seeds Academy continues to provide both after-school care and childcare for children as young as 2.5 years old. The new academy is also expanding its services to provide infant care.

Read about VCC's involvement with this project, and how quality childcare in Varina has affected its residents.
