We invest in the First 2,000 Days of a child’s life — in children ages 0-5 and their families by partnering with local organizations to provide programs that:

 

  • improve the quality of early childhood education

  • increase access to affordable, high-quality early care

  • expand early literacy opportunities

  • provide family support

 

There are 2,000 days between birth and kindergarten. The majority of brain development happens during this time, forming the foundation for all future learning.

ABOUT US

smart-start-logo-w-Tagline-400px.png

Smart Start was created in 1993 as an innovative solution to a problem: Children were coming to school unprepared to learn.

 

Policymakers recognized that progress would require tapping into the same innovative spirit that inspired private sector advances, and therefore, established Smart Start as a public/private partnership. Independent, private organizations work in all 100 North Carolina counties through The North Carolina Partnership for Children, Inc., and 75 Local Partnerships, including the Madison County Partnership for Children and Families.

 

The power of Smart Start is that it delivers outcomes by giving communities local control to determine the best approach to achieving them.
