Real stories from real North Carolinians

The future of any society depends on its ability to foster the health and well-being of the next generation—our children.

Smart Start is North Carolina’s nationally-recognized early childhood system that served 124,000 children in child care last year alone, along with thousands more young children who are not in child care by providing services such as parent training and health screenings.

Critical services for ensuring North Carolina’s future success like those provided through Wake County Smart Start at the Lucy Daniels Center are at risk because legislators are currently considering millions of dollars in cuts to Smart Start and another award-winning early childhood program More at Four.
