To Impact Children Ages Birth To Five, In Order To Ensure A Successful Future.

Early Learning Experiences

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

The experiences that children have during their early years literally shape the structure their brains. Today’s children are tomorrow leaders, therefore, everyone has a stake in ensuring that all children encounter the experiences they need to blossom, to be healthy, and to grow well. The Hertford-Northampton Smart Start Partnership for Children works, with the early childhood community, to bring together all the people involved in a young child’s life – families, teachers, caregivers, social workers, churches and many others—to ensure every child has all they need for healthy development.
